Elia, a permanent resident in rural Lyantonde, is an agriculturalist who rears cattle and, at times, sells them. He uses the money from sell of animals to take care of his extended family.

He applied for a loan of two million shillings to buy cows for fattening. Elia has been in the cattle trade for six years and therefore has enough experience in this field. He hopes that in future he will acquire land and start a ranch for himself to boost his business. His biggest customers are traders from Kampala and farmers. Elia, however, faces challenges of middlemen who frequently fluctuate prices, long dry spells that lead to the death of animals, and pests and diseases such as foot and mouth, which result in quarantines and trade embargos.
