A story from Riimenze


Mama Sarah Bullen 51 year’s old women, in 2018 joined women group called Aninangera in Bazumburu village and became the chairperson of the group. Mama Sarah plus other group members were trained on vegetable production and were given some seeds to start with. In that year the group members were able to produced enough vegetable for their family and for the market, they were all happy with the effort. However, in 2019 and 2020 the group got discouraged because their vegetables were repeatedly being stolen by thieves in the area and they could not make any gain anymore, as such the vegetable business was stopped.  However, today Mama Sarah is thankful to Solidarity SAP-R once more for bringing her back to her dream when she received a startup capital/loan of 10,000 South Sudanese Pounds in April 2022 which she has used to revive her business. She started with the production of tomatoes and other vegetables such as egg plants and green paper at the backyard of the compound. She has also invested some of the capital in the business of buying and selling rice at home and on market days. Mama Sarah uses the gains she makes to take care of her grandchild and other family members.

She is optimistic that by the end of the year 2022 she is going to make more money that she can invest to expand the production and change her life completely.
