A loan of $400 helped to buy cattle for his cattle rearing business.


Benon's story

Benon lives in Mbaaba Kiruhura district, an area known for cattle rearing. Little did he know that his destiny would be cattle rearing, as people used to mock herdsmen as being illiterate and academic failures. Things hardened up when Benon became a single father of three; he remained with no alternative apart from joining a cattle rearing business, a job that would give him time to look after his siblings at the same time and keep him close to the home. Benon’s hard work demystified all the fears he had in cattle rearing after realizing that he was even far better off than his friends who went to cities to look for better jobs. Benon has succeeded in buying a big chunk of land and increased his livestock. He now wants to buy more cattle to be put in his newly cleared farm. In order to do this he has applied for a loan from UGAFODE for this purpose.
