Constantine is a 58-year-old man living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. He is married and his wife is not employed or in business. He is a father to seven children, a number very common in the rural areas of the country and they live in a semi-permanent house but he hopes to construct a permanent house and also educate his children.
Constantine is in cocoa buying and selling as his business and has been in it for seven years though he says sometimes prices for the cash crop fluctuate, thus affecting his cash flow.
