A loan helped to buy cows for slaughter for his butcher business.


Augustine's story

Augustine is requesting a Kiva loan to buy cows for slaughter for his butcher business. At 34 years of age, he has been dealing in butchery and cocoa growing as sources of income.

He started by buying land where he planted cocoa. This has helped him accumulate capital to venture into the butcher business in Bundibugyo, Uganda. He dreams of expanding his business despite battling with the difficulties of competition (since cocoa trade is the major economic activity in his area), lack of enough capital during the off season, and accidents during the transportation of cows.
