40-year-old Difasa Webisa, 36-year-old Gimogo Mohamubi and 45-year-old Wambehge Kamilu do their commercial farming of cabbages in Gulu Uganda.
They started off in 2009 by leasing an acre of land for about half a million Ugandan shillings per year. With cabbage seeds, fertilizers and hard work, the brothers are now earning over 12 million Ugandan shillings with every harvest after every six months.
Their main markets are in their Gulu locality as well as in South Sudan. The venture has enabled them to support their respective families.
The brothers however face some challenges, including the conflict in Sudan as well as unpredictable weather patterns.
