He started his business of piggery in 2001 as a way to earn an income, support his family and educate his children as well as his late brother’s orphans.
He has managed this business for a long time due to the experience he acquired while he was still living with his father in the village. The business has helped him take care of his family needs and improve his life's living quality.
Acleston has a dream of expanding his small farm to a medium sized farm in the future so that he can increase his income and productivity on a large scale, since the market is wide. He therefore took the money to finish up his house so that he can be able to reduce his expense for renting.
His major challenge is inadequate capital to expand and at the same time buy feed, more pigs to increase their number on his farm and meet the family's needs.
His neighbors commend Acleston as very hardworking, determined and a dedicated ambitious farmer.
