Ageut- Namugere Betty Group's story

Betty N. (on the right) is 45 years old, married and the mother of 11 children. Betty and her group members are local brewers in Pallisa. They purchase millet from the farmers, mill the grain, and later ferment it, thereby preparing ajong (a local brew).



The loan is enabling these ladies to boost their businesses by purchasing more millet, the main ingredient for their local brew. Betty in particular dreams of opening up a pub for refined wines, spirits, and beer. Her business enables her to help her husband in providing for the family.
