In 2001 Rushere SACCO was started by the priest Fr. Tomaino, as Chairman for Rushere town board and a man who loved development, I decided to join Rushere SACCO since its inception in 2001 up to now I am one of the top shareholders of this SACCO. I started using Rushere SACCO for saving my little collections and later acquired first loan of shs 150,000 in 2002, which I used to buy bulls for fattening and sold them later at a bigger profit margin. Having identified great opportunities in farming I continued getting loans from this SACCO and they helped me to purchase my second land of about 75 hectares in Bwashamure cell. At the moment this farm accommodates over 250 cross cows, 200 goats and 4 acres of banana plantation.
