“I was home on Saturday morning when I received a call from FINCA asking me if I was Azim and if I knew about the Nsunga Ndala Promotion. I was told that I was one of the lucky winners of two heifers, I was so excited about this news because I have never owned any cows in my life. I couldn’t believe it when I was told, I thought it was just a dream! I am extremely happy.” Azim Hisali, winner of the second prize in Southern region.
