Edson's story

Edson, a resident of Bundibugyo, Ugandan, is basically a cocoa farmer. This is a family activity to generate income. For over 20 years as a farmer, he has taken responsibility for looking after his family and paying school fees for his children.

His gardens are affected by cocoa pests and diseases that reduce the volume of his expected cocoa harvests. He desires to supply more cocoa to promote his standard of living, especially educating his children.

He is requesting a loan to hire cocoa gardeners for harvesting. He used the previous loan to pay school fees for five children attending school at different levels and his joy is that none of them have dropped out of school.
