He has been in the business for the last 20 years and says his main aim is to boost his income and send his six children to school. He has purposely applied for this loan to buy dairy cows and buy veterinary drugs to treat local breeds.
He hopes to use this facility to buy Freisian bulls for cross breeding for better yields. He will then be able to pay for further studies for his six children.
Daudah confesses that his main challenge dealing with cattle and livestock is diseases like foot and mouth disease, as well as droughts that have run on for over eight months. However he is happy to have acquired six hectares of land which is now an extension of his grazing land.
