Mpeke Town Sn 01 - Ep 06 "Coffee Bail" (Luganda)

NUTRITION Having recently attained a small part of a coffee plantation as pay from Aggrey, Shaka sets out to seek membership at the cooperative. His efforts take him to Agatha, where Dorotia stumbles on them. In his attempt to prove that nothing suspicious is going on between them, Shaka finds himself in a hospital where he attends a very uncomfortable lecture among pregnant women and mothers about good feeding and nutrition. MARKET, QUALITY, BAD PRACTISES VIA COFFEE Dorotia steals coffee berries from her husband Shaka’s plantation in order to buy nutritious foods for Agatha and the children. She mixes ripe coffee berries with unripe coffee berries and sells to Matia who is surprised to later learn from Aggrey that they are of poor quality and are not worth much. Angry, Matia attacks Shaka who finds out that he was fooled by both Aggrey and his wife. Hurt, he locks up Dorotia in their house. JOINT ACCOUNT, MALE CROP (INVOLVEMENT OF WOMEN), WORKING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY As Alphonse is heading for the coffee meeting at the cooperative, he is stopped by Joy who begs to be added as a signatory to the coffee account. Alphonse tells her such a thing will not happen. Women’s work when it comes to farming coffee is at the farms and they should leave anything to do with money to the men. At the meeting the men plot how to keep women out of issues concerning earnings from coffee. The women at their market are also discussing how to get their men to listen to them and involve them more in the on-coffee farming.

NUTRITION, GET A LOAN Dorotia kicks Agatha and the kids out of her house. As they walk the street with Shaka, Isabella sees them and gets the idea to farm nutritious foods and make money. This was the missing link in her application for a loan. DANGERS OF QUICK MONEY, BUDGETING AND PLANNING Alphonse, tired of seeing his son Isaiah laze around at home, gets him a plumbing job at the Cooperative. Uninterested, Isaiah absconds from the assignment and teams up instead with Isabella, when he sees the opportunity of making quick money through the loan she is seeking from the Micro-Finance. Isabella gets the loan but this creates a rift between her and Isaiah when he learns that he is getting no cut from the loan as she intends to put it to use as applied for. MISMANAGEMENT IN SACCOS The market women, who are also seeking a loan for their SACCO kick out their Chair, Jenny, at the encouragement of Dorotia. Her crime is mismanagement.
Mpeke Town Sn 1 - Ep 2: "Gone Bananas" (Luganda)

GENDER ISSUES Back home in Kabulondampeke, life is not any better for Isaiah. His father is pushing him to go back in the city claiming it is where jobs for youths like him are found. Isaiah fails to convince his father that life in the city is not a joke. It is only Joy, his mother who is on his side and is happy to have him back home but even she is pushing him into farming something that Isaiah has never been interested in. Isaiah later talks his father into having him stay in the house a little longer after he spots him at Trinity’s bar having a good time and getting too close to the bartender and owner Trinity. NUTRITION (ORANGE SWEET FLESH POTATOES), MULCHING Dorotia very tired of the expensive and lazy habits of her sister Lucia, Agatha and the children tricks Shaka into kicking Lucia out of the house. She succeeds at this by pushing Shaka to the limits through denying him food and using Lucia to demand for the expensive and nutritious five food products per day for the children who are slowly beginning to lose weight. ACCESS TO FINANCE Aggrey through Shaka has spread fear and panic in the whole village collecting debts prematurely. Jenny who is slowly developing feelings for Aggrey over looks all this and shuts her ears to any advice from Mercy who warns her to stay away from Aggrey because he is a hard man.
