Edison and his daughter Maureen have come from the mainland to Kalangala Islands in Uganda. Around 8 years ago, Edison came looking for work but became so impressed with the quality of the soil and crop that he asked someone for a small plot of land to farm on. Edison has now become one of the larger charcoal producers selling huge bags of the fuel to a mainland agent. For each sack he says he receives around 10’000 shillings.
