Eric's story

Eric is requesting for financial support to pay casual labor on weeding his coffee and sugarcane plantations. Eric is married with fifteen children, of which five are enrolled in school. Eric was born in the year 1974 and he resides in Kyenjojo, Uganda where he is farming coffee, cassava and sugarcane, alongside selling of dry foods. Eric says his growing family that needed basic necessities inspired him to start the business, and he desires to expand more. However, price fluctuations of the agricultural products and seasonal changes are the major challenge in his business.
