Samuel is 32 years single with two dependants - his parents who are very old. He deals in cattle fattening and milking as his major source of income. He owns 40 cows of which the majority are for milk. Through income gained from milk sales Samuel has managed to look after his parents by providing them with medication and other basic necessities like food.

Samuel is applying for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX to buy more cows to increase his milk production and also to buy veterinary drugs for spraying as well as feeding to his cows. He hopes this will improve their health and quality.

Samuel's major challenge is the dry season when there is inadequate grass to feed his animals and a lack of water leading to a decrease in milk supply.

His dream is to own a milk cooling plant in his region so that he can save people from moving long distances for this service. Samuel is hard working.
