Building a multi-purpose farm in Kampala, UgandaJustine Nassali
As the single mother of eleven children in Uganda, Justine struggled to put food on the table. After her sister died of an AIDS-related illness, Justine took three more children under her wing.
But when Justine met with Opportunity Uganda, her worries began to fade, and her hopes started to rise.
Opportunity Uganda provided Justine a loan to help transform her backyard into a prosperous farming enterprise that includes 40 pigs, a flock of chickens and a retail shop managed by one of her sons.
In addition, Opportunity International’s Education Finance program helped Justine cover tuition and supplies, textbooks, and uniforms for her children. Thanks to Opportunity International’s EduSave plan, her children’s education won’t be interrupted if she encounters any trouble repaying loans from her business earnings.
Most importantly, she provides her children with an inspiring example of the possibilities available to them.
