Burombe Twimukye, Rukungiri Group's story
N. Francis, aged 55 years, has been selling cows and goats to earn a living from Kakoma in Rukungiri area in western Uganda. In this case Francis deals with farmers directly to purchase their livestock and then finds ready markets for them. Francis’s main drawback in the course of doing this business has been the unstable prices of cattle and low capital input. With determination and efficient customer care skills, he has managed to keep his business going for over ten years. In a month, he makes profits to the tune of 200,000 Ugandan shillings. Francis’s future plans are to fully expand his transactions which will earn him more revenue to pay for his children’s education requirements. With this loan, he anticipates making great strides in achieving this dream.
