Cotton Business Creates New Opportunities in Uganda
August 20, 2012
With TechnoServe's assistance, a cotton processor in eastern Uganda has become an economic engine for its community.
Mutuma Commercial Agencies Ltd. is an economic engine for the community of Kiyunga in eastern Uganda, employing nearly 250 people and buying cotton from thousands of farmers. TechnoServe worked with Mutuma to organize its smallholder suppliers and capitalize on a new market opportunity. As a result, Mutuma is poised to improve the livelihoods of even more farmers and employees in the coming years.
