Jackson is a cattle keeper and a trader. He is married and has 5 children aged between 9 and 17, all in school. Jackson buys cows at a tender age, grazes them for 3 to 6 months and then sells them at a slightly higher price than he originally paid. He supplements his income by selling bananas and coffee to adequately meet his family demands.

Jackson started the business in 2002 when his children began secondary school and he had no stable source of income to pay school fees. He therefore opted to trade in cattle. Jackson will use this loan to make profits to enable him to pay school fees for his children in the coming school term. His major challenge is the dry spell, usually in the middle of the year, which affects the growth and quality of the cows, thereby lowering their prices. Jackson is very hardworking.
