Masitula's Group's story

Masitula N. is one of the executive members of the Lugolole Group in Jinja. She is a married woman and has a business of selling bananas (matooke). She has been in this business all her life and hence has the experience of ensuring that she has high yields since most of the matooke she sells come from her garden. She will only go to her fellow matooke growers if she does not have enough to sell to her customers. Apart from the matooke, Masitula also has other sweet potato plantations, cassava, and groundnuts that help to boost her income. She also keeps animals like cows and goats at home and has bicycles that help to transport her produce to the desired market areas. Masitula needs a loan to help buy fertilizers for her farm and to employ manpower on those farms.
