Augustine started raising cows in the early 1990s but with only a few animals. When Ugafode Microfinance Limited started in Rukungiri, he joined so as to get money to buy more cows.This therefore boosted milk production on his farm.

He was able to get a loan and managed to buy a car in 2007, which he used to take milk to the dairy. Augustine also bought a solar system from one of the loans from Ugafode Microfinance Limited. He has also been able to educate his children and look after his family in a decent manner.

He now wants to buy more cows with the loan he is getting to increase milk production and earn more income. Thank you for the great services.
