A loan of $700 helped to construct a goat shed.


Isaac's story

Isaac is a young, hardworking 35-year-old man. He hails from the village of Mirama in the Mbarara district. He grew up without his parents after both of them died when he was at a very tender age. Issac was brought up by his grandmother who also died when he was just 15 years old. He then worked on people’s farms where he looked after goats. Because of his trustworthiness, he was given five goats as a gift, which laid the foundation for his success. He looked after those goats, and they multiplied to become over 30 goats. He used some of his goats to make a marriage offer and to acquire land to plant plantains. Last month he sold more than half of his goats to buy a piece of land for the rest of his goats to graze. Issac requests a loan of 1,800,000 UGX to buy building materials to construct a goat shed. He believes the shed will protect his animals from rain as well as diseases linked to poor hygiene. He is a hardworking and resilient young man. Issac is pictured with his wife and a UGAFODE staff member (middle).
