A loan helped to buy cocoa to sell.


Robben's story

Robben is married with four children and two dependants, all living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. He deals in motorcycle transport, locally known as bodaboda, and gets additional income from cocoa trading. He started the cocoa businesses way back in 2016 but with little progress due to inadequate capital and competition; this limits his profits.

However, he dreams of expanding the business and be able to start a cocoa store. He used part of profits from cocoa growing and selling it to buy the motorcycle. Robben has asked for a loan as additional working capital to buy cocoa to sell this season.
