David is a 28-year-old hardworking man living in Masindi, Uganda. Three years ago he ventured into the transport business and also rears cattle for a living. With the proceeds, he has been able to buy more land for grazing and increase his herd.

Prolonged drought is his major challenge, since he does not have alternative water sources other than the wells. He dreams of owning a ranch and buying a bus.

David is requesting a loan to buy cows for rearing.
