Stephen's story

Stephen is a promising old man born in the year 1960. He lives in Kyenjojo, Uganda where he owns a cattle farm for both selling and milk production for sale as his sources of income. Stephen is happily married and blessed with four children. In spite of his 15 years of experience in the business, Stephen faces harsh weather conditions, which affects pasture growth and milk production. However, he hopes to buy more high breed cows for milk production and construct a permanent residential house for settlement. Stephen is requesting for a loan facility to buy 2 young bulls for fattening.
