A loan of $575 helped to buy cocoa to resell.

Richard's story

Richard is a 38-year-old, hard-working man, living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. For 14 years he has been trading in cocoa. He was among the first people to venture into this lucrative business, and he has since reaped tangible benefits.

Like most good fathers, he desires to educate his children up to the university level, and set up sustainable income-generating activities for them. That is why he does so many activities, such as teaching and timber sales, to supplement the income he earns from the cocoa business.

Inadequate capital to meet the demand, and the seasonal nature of the crop, pose challenges to his business. His dream is to be the major supplier of cocoa in the district. Richard is requesting a loan to buy cocoa to resell.
