He sold his local breed cattle and bought hybrid cows that yield more milk and at the same time can be kept on a small piece of land. With the help of NAADs he has received free coffee seedlings and now wants to buy manure.
However, his capital is not enough to invest in a coffee plantation and at the same time support his cattle business. Therefore, he applied for a loan of UGX 2,000,000 from UGAFODE to help him buy organic manure to improve the coffee yields.
