Gordeous is a resident of Nyamiyaga, who after school, like any other educated person, had big plans for his life. He tried several job hunts but later on realized that life was not a bed of roses. When he married and later got two children, he immediately sought a job as a school security guard, which his former schoolmates discouraged him from doing. However, he was determined to make life meaningful.

Two years later Gordeous embarked on a piggery project which turned all the odds into a bright future. He now owns a cycle taxi, a permanent house and his children are attending good schools. All his achievements have been attributed to hard work and being focused.

Currently, Gordeous is overwhelmed by the demand for pork and piglets, so he has applied for a loan of UGX 1,000,000 from UGAFODE to improve on his project so as to meet the demands of his customers effectively. He will buy more piglets for raising and then selling.
