Ventuning In Farming

My name is Ian Kasuve I am a youth dubbed 22 years of age; I am a renowned dairy farmer. Soemtime back, I graduated from the university and sought to look for employment. I could wake up everyday and look for world but actually it was too impossible to get one. I was frustrated but when the youth enterprise fund to be initiated by the office of the prime minister, i opened my eyes wide and told myself that this was the opportunity. After a week, I applied for a loan and with it i bought one dairy cow and started dairy farming. Well I started growing, earning from the sale of milk. With time, I added more cows and for now, I have many dairy cows in my large which are giving me immense profits. I have repaid the loan and now I am heading for big things.
