A loan of $1,550 helped a member buying more bananas for making her local brew and paying for manpower for her farm.

Dezi's Group's story

Dezi N. is the chairperson of "Bbogo Women’s Group" in Lugazi. She is a farmer growing bananas ‘matooke’ (a kind of banana), potatoes, and maize plantations on her family piece of land which food is both for sale and home consumption. In addition to farming, she prepares local brew known as "waragi" for sale, using a certain kind of yellow banana which she has also planted on the same family land.

Dezi is 42 years old and married with 10 children of whom 6 are girls and 4 are boys, while she cares for 5 grand-children. The loans have helped Dezi plus her other members in the group to recapitalize their businesses and this time round, Dezi would like a loan to buy more bananas for making "waragi" enough for her customers, as well as employing labour / manpower on her farm since now is the beginning of the rainy season. She is grateful for all her previous loans from Pearl Microfinance; for she is a better person now both in business and in family.
