Mirembe Kawuwa Group's story

The Mirembe Kawuwa group is located in a rural area in Rakai district. They are farmers and mainly deal in trading coffee.

Norah, a mother of five between the ages of 18 and 21 (three go to school), is a very hard-working lady. Norah owns nurseries of various types of trees, including mangos, avocados, coffee, guavas, apples, pomegranates, jackfruits, and many others. She works five days a week for eight hours each day. Norah started this business in 2008 to earn herself a living. Her customers come from different areas, as far as the Tanzanian border and the Kampala district.

However, the seedlings are vulnerable to insects and pests which hinder their proper growth. She is going to use the loan to buy polythene bags that will be used as shade for the seedlings.

Norah rears cross breed cows as a supplementary source of income.

In this group: Sulaina, Florence, Rosemary, Rose, Norah, Oliva, Veronika, Pauline
