ENTREPRENUERS ARE MADE

NL is one the youth trained and become and became an entrepreneur in her community. NL is becoming exemplary in her community basing on the diversity of income generating activities she is managing. NL in her interaction with the field staff says, “I decided to diversify my income generating activities to overcome the unpredictable weather that I had experienced over time. Initially I was relying mostly on crop growing but the rains were unpredictable and I could make losses after a whole season.
With a piece of advice and technical support from Kitovu Mobile, I changed my mind and integrated livestock production in my farming business. I now have a diary cow on zero grazing and I have established a banana plantation on top of other horticultural (vegetable) crops. I apply manure from the Dairy cow to my gardens to improve on the soil fertility.
The dairy cow project has proved to be a viable project to me. For the past five months I have been earning averagely 4000/= UGX ~ $ 1.5 USD from the sale of milk as my net profit”.
With such tangible results; at Kitovu Mobile we say it is possible to reduce rural youth urban migration and make entrepreneurs. Join us and transform the nation.

SEE A BRIGHT FUTURE IN ME

With My Pig
With My Pig

 

“With my teen age I can see a bright future in me”. Says SLV
Every day I wake up at 6.30 pm to prepare myself and to attend to my income generating projects. The projects include piggery, Orchard with focus on mangoes and oranges plus the tomato garden. My projects keep very busy throughout the day and I don’t regret any way.
Surprisingly, I have seen my income and lifestyle changing to the better. Currently I have 3 pigs with one about to reproduce and I have planted over 3000 plants of tomatoes. For only this year I expect to earn over 500,000 UGX as my net profit by December.
I applaud Kitovu Mobile team for having trained me on how to plan and manage my projects very well. Everyone can now see a significant difference with me compared to other girls of my age.
Bravo Kitovu Mobile.

Supporting Youth to be become entrepreneurs is a collective responsibility

Kitovu Mobile remains at the forefront of supporting the youth to become entrepreneurs through sustainable modern farming. During this period 62 (47M, 15F) youth from our catchment area convened in Kirumba Sub county  to  attend  a two   day training on dairy  Cattle management. The training aimed at equipping the teenagers with skills and knowledge of managing dairy cows on zero grazing system as a means to enable them boost their income levels and diversifying their income generating activities.

The topics covered included among others, selection of a good dairy cow, feeding of dairy cows on zero grazing, routine management of dairy cows and making of silage.

It was noted that majority expressed interest of undertaking dairy cow as core project though were limited with resources. After a thorough assessment Kitovu Mobile was able to give out ten dairy cows to the qualifying beneficiaries. To ensure a quick multiplier effect, the first beneficiaries will be expected to pass on a heifer to another youth in the group before they can fully own the given dairy cow. Given the dairy cows given out were in calf we anticipate an average of 15 youth to have benefited from this project in a period of two years only.

We have hope that this project will benefit the youth to overcome unemployment and the rampant poverty in the community.  “Let’s join hands and support the young generation to cause social change”
