Yusufu's story

Yusufu was born in the year 1960 and is married with six biological children. They are residing in Kyenjojo Uganda.

He is a hardworking, elderly farmer dealing in cattle selling as his main income generating activity with supplementary income coming from milk sales. Yusufu has experienced ten years in the business. He hopes to increase his number of cattle in spite of long droughts that affect pasture growth and cattle diseases. He says he was given two heads of cattle by his late father and this inspired him to start the business.
