Some 86% of the population in Uganda live in rural areas and earn their living from subsistence agriculture. Yet despite Uganda's fertile soil, favourable weather and growing economy, over half the population do not have sufficient access to food and live in abject poverty.
Farms average 1.3 hectares, which is not enough to support cattle, so many farmers keep goats instead. However, local breeds have only short periods for producing milk and have a low milk yield, so they don’t provide much sustenance for households.
