BUSINESS / RECORD
Agnes brews her own liquor made of cassava, a Ugandan typical root, and sells it at home and in local bars. She invests her profits in paying part of her children school fees.
Yumbe is a rural region in northern Uganda along the border with South Sudan. It is a very poor area where the local Marian Brothers congregation works, promoting educational and agricultural projects. Some years ago, they began a microcredit program with women in the area. Very improvised women are making progress, and with them their families, in diverse businesses that they have launched.
