JohnBosco is a 52-year-old divorced man with five children. Three of his children attend school. He started goat rearing and trading in 2000 to meet his family’s needs. People in his home area describe him as a hard-working and shrewd man. He operates in a rural area of Nyakera near a Lake. Graising and trading in goats has helped him educate his children and look after his grand children, whose parents died a few years ago. He would like a loan of ugx. 2,000,000 to buy more land for grazing. His challenge is that he lacks serious buyers for his goats. He is also challenged by poor means of transport to take his goats to urban centers for the market. His dream is to see a permanent shelter(descent house) constructed for his children and grand children which he hopes to achieve with the help of loans.
