A loan of $1,375 helps to buy more cows to fatten and sell so that he can keep his children in school.


James's story

James is a 42-year-old man who deals in a cattle-fattening business in Lyantonde. He has been in this business for eight years and it has been prosperous since then. Besides cattle fattening, James also deals in food crops like banana and maize growing, where he fetches more income.

As the children advance to higher classes, the costs have increased, thus creating a need to increase his income inflow. This loan will enable him to increase his cattle headcount, hence bringing in more income for supporting the family.

James is grateful for the support that will ensure that his children stay in school.
