“The MUIIS project has changed my life in many ways that I will always be eternally grateful. I am a single mother of one child and joined this project last year in September. I had so many debts that I cleared as soon as I was paid after registering 230 farmers. I was so excited and motivated to work hard and earn enough to look after my child and grandmother who is diabetic. She is now much better since I can afford her medication. I have also gone ahead and trained and mentored senior six (S.6) leavers in my community to learn how to profile and give agricultural advisory to farmers in Budaka. They are now earning some money and will be able to afford their university or tertiary education. I have also started building my house and I now see a bright future for my daughter and I.”
