Basooka Kwavula Kisuula Group's story

Jesca is a married woman with 10 children and she is aged 52 years. She lives on the outskirts of Kyotera town with her family. Four of her children are still attending school.
Jesca is a member of Basooka Kwavula Kisuula group, which has eight members comprised of five women and three men. She has been in this group from the beginning and this is her third cycle where she has so far acquired loans of UGX.300,000, 400,000 and 600,000 respectively. She will use this particular loan to buy organic fertilizers for her coffee plants. She hopes it will be able to increase her yields. She is a farmer who deals in agriculture, specifically coffee growing. She supplements her income with baking cakes, which she sells in nearby markets. She sells her products to people in rural settings. She has been in these businesses since 1990. She started these businesses with the aim of getting income so that she could pay school fees and take care of other family expenses, since her husband had an accident and can no longer work. Her dream is to educate her four children to higher levels of education.
Her greatest challenge is lack of enough capital to finance her businesses. She describes herself as a hard working lady.

In this group: Jesca, Vangirita, Remegius, Jane, Rehema, Medi, Joyce, Amani
