Nyabikungu Kwetungura Women's Group's story

Nyabikungu Kwetungura women’s group is located on the outskirts of Mbarara town. The group is comprised mainly of women whose major activity is agriculture. They fall into different categories of divorcees, widows, single mothers, and a few who are married. Annet, a resident of rural Rugando (a suburb in Mbarara municipality), is aged 44. She did not go far in education so she started commercial farming in order to survive and also to cater for her family. This business grew and helped her to sustain the family and contribute to the education of her children. She later obtained a loan of UGX 400,000 from Ugafode microfinance which has helped her to prosper, which motivated her to mobilize her colleagues to form a development group called Nyabikungu Kwetungura women. This group is very determined to change each member’s life and has succeeded in many developmental projects, however there has been a lot of challenges and because of that they are requesting a loan of UGX 5,000,000 (the whole group) to help them plough land and increase their working capital for their different business.

In this group: Abby, Julia, Maria, Florence, Catherine, Annet, Imelda, Robinah, Eliab, John Bosco
