To notch up something lucrative out of any business, diligence is required. Once diligence is embraced as a precept in one's daily activities in any enterprise, the inside lane for success will surely be beckoning. This has been 45-year-old Dickson Makka L.'s philosophy for the past seventeen years as he goes on the trivial rounds of his farming business in Rangulumira-Kayunga.
Dickson, a happily married father of nine says he set forth in this business after the completion of his studies at Uganda's premier university. At his farm, he plants all genres of cash crops, such as pineapple, passion fruit, rice, cassava, beans, peas, bananas, maize, etc. He harvests and sells most of his crops. As such he is able to make profits to the tune of about $433 weekly and $1300 monthly, respectively.
With this loan, he says he is going to purchase more maize, bean and pea seedlings to plant. He is looking at the prospect of being able to sell more once he can harvest more and have more in his reserves.
