A loan helped to pay for land for cocoa farming.

Richard's story

Richard is a cocoa farmer who supplements his harvest by renting other cocoa gardens to harvest, so that he has a quantity of output to sell. For over 25 years he has been in business, along with the responsibilities of looking after his family and paying school fees for his children in Bundibugyo, Uganda. His business is affected by cocoa pests and diseases that reduce the volume of his expected cocoa harvests.

He got the previous loan to pay school fees for his children. He aspires to become a leading cocoa supplier in his area, which in turn will improve his standard of living. He also works in lumber to earn additional income. Richard will use this loan for purchasing land for cocoa farming.
