WAMALA GROWERS' COOPERATIVE UNION
Wamala Growers' Cooperative Union is located in Mityana town. The once vibrant coffee producing Union that brought together 168 farmers' cooperatives in the districts of Mityana, Mubende, Kiboga and Kyankwanzi was affected by the liberalization of the industry. The liberalization encouraged many private players to invest in the farmer's coffee at competitive prices. This in turn greatly affecting the Union's turnover yet it had to finance the glaring remuneration of 3000 employees.
In order to address the challenges faced, The Union teamed up with Momin and Wali Ltd a firm from Pakistan to form Wamala Momin Joint Venture to produce cooking oil. Momin and Wali Ltd injected in shs 200million in the joint venture while Wamala Growers' Cooperative Union was to provide funds for the raw materials. In 2009, the Union accessed a loan of shs 500million from the Microfinance Support Center Ltd in 2009 for purchase of raw materials. In 2010, the Union accessed another loan of shs.1billion, of which sh400 million was located to purchasing machinery and sh600 million for purchase of raw materials. These investments increased the production capacity of the Union. Today, the Union produces 5000 liters of cooking oil and 24 tonnes of cotton seed cake for livestock. This has created jobs for 70 people. From the profits obtained from the sale of cooking oil, the Union has been able to buy a modern Macquina coffee plant which hauls coffee for members. In addition, using part of the profits they have constructed a milk plant and a collection center in Kyankwanzi.
Through profits generated from the cooking oil, the Union secured a truck that is used in transportation of raw materials and products to the market. It has also reduced salary arrears of the former employees from shs. 218 million to shs.23 million.
Currently, the factory processes between 400-450 bags of cotton to make 150 jerry cans of cooking oil per day. The residue of the cotton seeds is used to produce cake that the farmers use to make feeds for poultry. The Union plans to upscale such that they also produce jerry cans and soap. They also plan to revamp their cattle farm in Kyankwazi so as to increase milk and beef production.
Wamala Growers' Cooperative Union currently supports 168 primary Cooperative Societies and out growers in Kasese and Kabarole. It is particularly strategic because it buys cotton from Nyakatonzi Growers' Cooperative Union one of the Unions funded by MSC.
