A mechanic earning big from piggery
Herbert Wasswa left his home in Nansana in Kampala for Fort Portal town in Kabarole district in search of work as a mechanic. When Wasswa got a wife Nkoba Kevin, they decided to settle in Bakebwa village, Rwengaju Sub County in the same district.
With more responsibilities of raising a family, Wasswa and his wife opted for piggery farming to supplement his earnings from the mechanic job. The two are some of the beneficiaries of the Rwengaju model village, an initiative by H.E the President funded through NAADS.
Under the Rwengaju model village initiative, households were supported with agricultural inputs including planting materials, livestock materials (heifers, pigs and poultry) and value addition equipment (milk cooler) with the aim of improving their incomes.
