Cotton Cotton Business Creates New Opportunities in Uganda A new market opportunity for a business in eastern Uganda is poised to leave a positive impact on the surrounding community. Mutuma Commercial Agencies Ltd. Ugandan entrepreneur Amos Mugisha launched Mutuma in as a cotton processor and oil miller.
The cotton seed is further processed into cooking oil and seed cake for animal feed. Mutuma quickly became an economic engine for the Kiyunga area, employing nearly people at peak processing season and buying cotton from thousands of smallholder farmers. But the business faced a number of challenges.
Local producers lacked farming and business skills that would help them increase their yields.
They were disorganized, making it difficult for Mutuma to collect their cotton. And the business was exporting all of its cotton lint, meaning that much of its potential value was being realized elsewhere.
After conducting an analysis of the industry landscape, TechnoServe identified a promising new market opportunity for Mutuma: As with Mutuma, most other Ugandan gins exported their cotton lint at low profit margins. Only one domestic business was producing absorbent cotton wool, leaving plenty of room for another player in the market.
Mutuma secured financing for machinery and began constructing a new production facility in In the meantime, TechnoServe worked to organize farmers in the area and develop their capacity to supply Mutuma with seed cotton.
Our advisors helped form or strengthen farmer business groups that allowed producers to aggregate their crops, access finance and receive support services more easily.
Farmers received training on best production practices, such as planting seeds in rows, spacing them properly and spraying their cotton plants to control pests. The trainings also showed farmers how to better produce and market staple crops such as maize corn and beans.
The improvements helped farmers increase their yields by double or more, in some cases. Before working with TechnoServe, the group collectively produced six tons of cotton. In the most recent growing season, the group sold 30 tons to Mutuma.
Samuel used to produce about pounds of cotton per acre. Today, his productivity has improved to 2, pounds per acre, and his income from cotton has risen sixfold. With the additional money from cotton, Samuel started a small store and bought an additional two acres of land to cultivate.
He is building a new house and paying school fees for his eight children. As for Mutuma, the company has benefited from the improved productivity and organization of its suppliers.
In the most recent season, Mutuma produced more than 3, bales of cotton lint — a 42 percent increase fromwhen TechnoServe began working with the business.Bouvier's Law Dictionary Edition. P. PACE.A measure of length containing two feet and a half; the geometrical pace is five feet long.
