Miria's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cocoa for resale.

Miria's story

Miria resides in Bundibugyo, Uganda with five children, two of whom are in primary school.

She is married, very hard working and engaged in trading and farming cocoa as her major economic activity for over 15 years and eight years, respectively. She is very committed as a farmer and now believes that through trading and farming, her family is to have a better future. Her major challenge is that of high transport and storage costs, but she wants to continue with the business to raise school fees for the children.

She has requested a loan to buy cocoa for resale to her customers. She got a loan for cocoa trading last season and says the returns were quite good; this enabled her to service the loan on time.
