Cents for Seeds
Cents for Seeds is a micro-loan project running in northern Uganda. Uganda is home to some of the most fertile land in the world, however, in the years following the war, the people did not have anything to farm with. Beginning in 2011 with just 100 women, Cents for Seeds will reach 13,800 in 2018. Our mission is to provide loans to 20,000 women by the year 2020.

Cents for Seeds is changing the lives of families in Uganda by empowering women and enabling them to provide for their families.


Eunice Awoni, Barr Village

Eunice Awoni lives in Abolet village Eunice is 27 years old and has three children. She is the Cents for Seeds Chairperson for Barr village. She has participated in Cents for seeds since 2010. From the time Cents for seeds was introduced, her life changed. Eunice and her family are now able to afford food and even their health care has improved. They now have the means to maintain their own health and the children can now study. “Life before Cents for Seeds was very hard because everyone was staying in the Internally Displaced Peoples camps. We were given food from the Ugandan Government. However, in 2008 the Government stopped supplying food and we were told to return home to our ravaged land. Life from then on became ever more difficult. Now our life is better again"


Kristina Health Centre, Otuke District

The Kristina Clinic was opened in 2012 and was named after Julius Achon's mother. The centre treats the local community for illnesses from cold and flu to HIV/Aids, provides free immunizations for children, triage, and an ambulance service to the district.


Semi, Okwang

Semi is 35 years old and is a widow with 5 children. Cents for Seeds has helped her sell her crops to pay for things that her household needs, like soap, school fees, and other foods. As a mother, this project has helped Semi because in the past she didn’t have any knowledge about agricultural practices. Now she passes this valuable knowledge onto her children because they help her in the garden. “Before the program I had no where to run from my hardships. Now I can solve them myself."
