Cosalanta's story

Cosalanta is requesting a loan to pay school fees for her children in primary and secondary schools. She is a married mother of six children and is primarily engaged in cocoa farming and selling for income generation. She lives in Bundibugyo, Uganda, where she also battles delays in payments by her clients and poor storage for harvested cocoa, which affects the sales. She has practiced cocoa growing for nearly 20 years as a major source of livelihood and shows determination to acquire more land for farming.
