A loan of $2,825 helped a member to buy cattle for fattening.


Kalagala Abakyara Group's story

Lauben is a married man with eight children. Six of them attend school, and the last two are still too young to go to school. Lauben is an agriculturalist who concentrates on cattle-fattening to make a living for himself and his family. He started this business in 2000 because he had to cater to the growing needs of his large family. He started a small retail shop to supplement the already strained income. He will use the loan to buy more cattle that he will graze for a short period and then sell. His goal is to facilitate his children's education up to university. He is, however, affected by drought, which affects the productivity of the cattle. He is a hardworking man. Lauben appears as the second from the left in the photo.
