A loan of $4,300 helped a member to purchase sacs of coffee to resell.

Lubajja Traders (C) Group's story

Huruna has been in the business of supplying coffee beans to factories in Mityana for about 10 years. He sells the beans from his 10-acre operation as well as coffee that he gathers from smaller operations. From his 10 acres, he is usually able to get two sacs of coffee per week.

Getting the coffee ready to sell is a time-consuming and laborious process. After picking the coffee pods, he lays them in the sun to dry. After they are dry, Huruna must crack open the individual pods and extract the coffee beans. Then he must pack these beans into large sacs and transport them to the factories to sell them.

Huruna has eight children ranging from 6 to 16 years old. They are all in school, so he and his wife have to search for ways to manage the large task of providing school fees for all of them. All of his children attend private schools. This is a sign that his business is making a difference in his family.

Huruna is requesting a loan of 2 million USH (UGX) to purchase sacs of coffee to resell. He says that if his business takes off, he would like to build some houses to rent to people in his community. His biggest dream is to travel around the world.
