Monica is a 30-year-old woman who lives in a rural area in the Kazo Kiruhura district. She is divorced with 2 children and 4 dependents, with whom she is living due to the death of their parents. She deals in cattle fattening and milking as her major source of income. She owns 60 cows, of which the majority are for milk. With this income, Monica has managed to look after her family by providing medication and by paying school fees for her two children and three sisters.

Monica is applying for a loan of UGX 3,000,000 to buy more dairy cows to increase her milk production. She will also buy drugs for her sick cows.

Her major challenge is the dry season, which leads to inadequate grass to feed her animals, lack of water, and the resulting decrease in milk production.

Her dream is to own a milk cooling plant in her region and also to see her children graduating from the University.
