A loan helped to buy cocoa to sell.


Costa's story

Costa is a 39-year-old married man with three children living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. His main business is growing cocoa. He produces food crops like maize, soybeans, and groundnuts to feed his family and to sell for additional income. He has been in business for 20 years. He started this business because small scale farmers in his area could access better prices with unprocessed cocoa harvests thought cocoa companies.

He is faced with a problem of transporting his produce to the market and price changes due to seasonality of cocoa sales. Costa is requesting a loan to buy and restock cocoa to be sold at a better price in the next season.
