Wilson is a married man who is 50 years old with children who are all in school.

Wilson rears cattle in Kagaramira village; he sells some cows to neighborhoods for slaughtering and to butchers from all corners. He also earns some money selling milk from the cows. He has been in this business for fifteen years. He also sells goats to add to his source of income. He wants a loan of 5,000,000 UGX to buy building materials for completion of his homestead so that he can conveniently house his children well. He will use the money from selling cows to repay the loan.

The major challenges of rearing cattle are diseases which attack the cows, competition, price fluctuations, and theft of cows. Wilson is a hardworking and self-motivated man.

His dream is to save up enough money to become an extensive agriculturalist.
