5 Supported by the Government of Uganda and the Delegation of the European Commission in Uganda Benefits of WRS to Farming Communities Proper storage facilities that are professionally run and secure. WRS exposes you to markets like WFP, larger grain traders and the regional markets. WRS exposes you to buyers that you would have never met both domestically and regionally Access to finance through the banks. Allows you to get 60% of the value of your commodity in order to defer its sale. Allows you to sell when the price is right rather than right after harvest. In summary it allows you better control over the sale of your agricultural commodities.
