A loan of $200 helped to buy organic chemicals for her tomato garden.


Edith's story

Edith is a farmer, aged thirty-six years. She has done farming since 2000, and she says it has rewarded her. She mainly grows tomatoes, which she takes and sells in the markets at a profit. She works five days per week and gives the business an average of five hours per day.

In addition to farming, she also makes and sells locally made cookies, which gives her more income. Her business is located in a rural area in Bushenyi District. Edith started this business with a motive of supporting her husband.

She would like to buy chemicals to apply on the tomato garden so that she can harvest much.

Her clients are mainly the local people in Kiyanga. She has hopes of successfully paying tuition for all her children. Her challenge is the perishability of what she deals in, since she sometimes has losses. She also has bad debtors who never pay on time, but she hopes that the challenges will be overcome.
