A loan of $800 helped a member to buy organic manure.

Kyeicumu Twekambe Group's story

Solome is the featured borrower in the Kyeicumu Twekambe Group. She is 45, married and has four children aged four, six, fourteen and seventeen years, all of whom attend school. She operates a retail shop but faces the challenge of poor transportation in the area, which affects her suppliers.

To supplement her income Solome also farms. Her group has applied for a 2,000,000 UGX loan, a portion of which she will use to buy organic manure for her vegetable garden. She expects the use of this manure will increase her yields and income in the long run.

Solome’s plan for the future is to expand her farmland, as well as convert her shop into a wholesale enterprise. She feels the demand from the residents of Kyeicumu is there.

Seated on the ground is the group chairperson who is not taking a loan this season. She signed the client waiver form, however.

In this group: Solome, Stephen, Karoli, William, Luka
