Kisaakya Kimwanyi2 Group's story

Robinah is a single mother with four children of whom three are school going.

She is our repeat borrower in her second cycle. She borrowed a loan of UGX 300,000 through the group for the purpose of paying tuition for her children. Her business is selling banana peelings, which she collects from neighboring markets and rubbish pits.

Robinah is innovative because she turns waste into income. She is so happy with her business because she uses only small capital and yet earns good profits from it. Her main clients are well wishers and farmers within the city and its outskirts who use the peels to feed their animals or spread in their gardens to fertilize them. She wishes to borrow more loans from Ugafode Microfinance Ltd. so as to buy a plot of land and built a home for her family.

In this group: Robinah, Milton, Sarah, Besi, Peneropu, Scola, Annet, Becca, Abby, Godfrey, Sarah, Hassifa, Rose
