Solid Teachers Development Initiative-Mityana Group's story

Patrick K. is a teacher by profession and belongs to the solid teacher’s development initiative group-Mityana. He started teaching last year after graduate school. Patrick describes himself as calm, collected, forthright and pro-active. These are virtues he says jump started his progress in the teaching business. He teaches mostly in schools around Kikumbi-Mityana. Patrick, who comes across as a jolly and humorous gentleman, also sells cash crops like coffee and maize to supplement the relatively paltry remuneration he gets as a teacher. In a week, out of his cash crop sales his reckoning is that he makes 40,000 shillings. Patrick has no children and is still single but prefers not to divulge his age, insisting he is an adult and that is what matters. With this loan he says he wants to purchase a cow. With this cow he says he will be able to get milk that he will sell and presumably if the cow gives birth to other calves he will be able to plan to sell them when they grow so as to expand on his business profits.
