A loan helped to buy cocoa to sell.


Rose's story

Rose is 41 years old, married, and lives in Bundibugyo-Uganda. She is hardworking, dealing in the cocoa trade, and gets additional income from cocoa growing.

Rose was inspired to get into this business by her biological parents, who grow and sell cocoa as the major family activity for daily income generation. Rose's business generates income to meet her basic family needs, plus educating her children.

Local people are her main customers. She is challenged by competition, and limited capital that hinders future prospects to expand her business and start a cocoa store of her own. Rose intends to use this loan to buy more cocoa to sell.
