Prossy's Group's story

Prossy’s group members have been attending YICE’s trainings on farming as business. This group is one of YICE’s women self-help groups in Kyakatebe village. Prossy is the leader of the group that consists of five members who all have small farming enterprises. They grow different crops but work as a team and they help each other on their small farms. Prossy (first from left) is 30 years old and married with five children. She has been farming for 13 years and has never yielded enough to cater for her family's food needs. As a result of YICE’s trainings, Prossy and her group members want to put the skills learnt into practice. The group asks for this loan to enable them to buy good quality seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides as well as access more training on better farming methods. They all believe that with the support of a loan, their yields will increase and they will be able to help their families and improve their finances. Prossy’s dream is to have enough food for her family and live a good life.

In this group: Prossy, Edith, Catherine, Resty, Scovia
