A loan of $2,450 helped a member to buy sprays for his cattle to kill ticks, de-worming medicine to treat against diseases, and to purchase more cattle.

Ddembe Gayaza Group, Mubende's story

Having ventured into the business of cattle keeping, hardworking K. Abu Baker of Ddembe Gayaza group, Mubende, has no regrets about the advice he got from friends to begin his current business that he operates from Kiganda, Mubende.

Being part of his culture commonly carried out in western Uganda where people own large heads of cattle, the 34-year-old has benefited a lot from his farming business. He deals in selling cattle; hides and beef are some of the products obtained by his customers from his farming business.

Abu Baker’s motive to acquire this loan is to help him buy sprays for his cattle to kill ticks and also de-worming medicine to treat against diseases that affect his cattle. In addition, he will purchase more cattle for fattening on his farm. This will help him increase production as well as his revenue.

In the future, Abu Baker looks at doing further restocking to have more cows on his farm.
