Goretti's story

Gorretti is a married woman, aged forty-eight years old with seven children of whom three attend different schools. She also lives in a rural area of Masaka district with her family and fifteen other orphans whom she takes care of. She is a farmer who deals in an agricultural business where she grows pineapples, passion fruit and watermelon.

She works six days a week and 12 hours per day and she also owns a retail shop which supplements her income. She has been in the agricultural business since 2005 and she started the business to earn a living and get money for school fees.

She acquired this loan to buy pesticides and manure for her plantations. She says her clients are traders from Kyotera and Kampala. Her future hopes are to educate the children she is taking care of and to be the leading supplier of agricultural products in her area.

Her problem is the unpredictable weather such as a long drought and she describes herself as a hardworking woman and thanks lenders for the good work.
