After the business management skills training he identified farming as business solution to his poverty. By taking group loan he invested in cassava production and value addition. I have never looked back, he notes. I earn UGX 10 million a year and has been able after 10 years of failed marriage responsibility to send his children to private schools and build a permanent house with solar light."
