Sylvia is solving poverty by selling eggs from her poultry project

In the remote village of Lwengyenyi, Lwengo district, Sylvia’s life took a remarkable turn in October 2022 when she received 25 chickens through Kisoboka Africa’s School Community Bank initiative. This modest poultry project has blossomed into a beacon of hope, not just for Sylvia but for her entire community.

Before the chickens arrived, Sylvia’s family faced the daily struggle of making ends meet. However, with the steady supply of fresh eggs, she now has a reliable source of income, enabling her to provide for her family’s basic needs and invest in their future.

Sylvia’s determination and hard work have paid off handsomely. Each day, she diligently collects the eggs laid by her feathered companions and sells them in the local market. The steady stream of income has empowered her, instilling a sense of pride and self-reliance.

But Sylvia’s impact extends far beyond her household. As a member of the Kisoboka Africa School Community Bank, she has become an inspiration to others, demonstrating how small initiatives can catalyze significant change. Her success story has motivated fellow members to explore similar opportunities, fostering a ripple effect of empowerment throughout the village.

Kisoboka Africa’s initiative has not only provided Sylvia with a means to escape poverty but has also strengthened the fabric of the community. Neighbours now support one another, sharing knowledge and resources, creating a collaborative environment that fosters growth and resilience.

Sylvia’s journey is a testament to the transformative power of small steps taken with determination and perseverance. Her story serves as a reminder that even in the face of adversity, opportunities exist for those willing to embrace them, paving the way for a brighter future for themselves and their communities.
