Joseph is a 35-year-old man with four children living in Kagadi, Uganda. Like most good fathers he wishes to educate his children to attain degrees as minimum qualification and set up sustainable projects for income sources. For six years he has been running a piggery project. He started with two pigs but now has over 20 pigs and he has sold others. He started the business with his salary savings as a teacher. His business dream is to construct a modern pig sty as the current dwelling is grass thatched. Joseph is requesting for a loan to buy feeds for the pigs.
