Ugandan Farmer Builds Sustainable Life From One Cow
Yahaya Wandwasi, a Ugandan dairy farmer, got his start with a single cow in 1994 from Heifer International. From this one cow, Wandwasi was able to build a financially sustainable farming life that now includes a dairy, property, and a small coffee plantation.
Wandwasi says he used to get 25 litres of milk daily from the cow he got from Heifer International – Uganda. He sold the milk and raised the money to engage in other farming ventures.
He says when he had saved sh400,000, he bought a piece of land.
“I started with 100 coffee plants and planted more as I got more money. I now have over 400 Arabica coffee plants,” Wandwasi says.
