The saying “start small and grow up, start big and blow up” is the guiding principle for K. Jamil. He started producing animal feed ten years ago and has never turned back. He processes cattle and chicken feed out of maize husks, small fish, cow bones and snail shells. He has a milling machine and a mixer which he uses to produce the feed. In a day, he produces 20 bags, which in most cases are already ordered by clients.

Jamil got the idea of starting a business when he was working with UGACHICK, a local breeding and animal feed processing plant in Kampala.

K. and his wife are blessed with 5 children whom they provide with all the necessities of life. K. is 39 years of age and hopes to erect a commercial building in Lugazi Town before he is 45 years. He is an honest person and delivers all orders as requested. This has led to an increased number of customers. The business is growing very fast, thus the need for more funding.
