WHEN you listen to the way Mudhasi Famba, speaks about his life achievements, it’s hard to believe that he owns a house in Kakombo Village Iganga district.
From being a shamba boy to a boda boda rider, to a shop keeper Musana had to do all sorts jobs to build his home.
“I wanted to have the best so I decided to work hard to achieve my dream house,” says Famba.
He adds that whenever he cleaned around the homes of the rich, he became more determined to also put up a good house although not as good as those of his former bosses.
How he started
From the money he earned, he decided to buy a motor cycle so that whenever he was not so busy with other things, he used his motor cycle for boda boda services to supplement on his income.
From this job he saved about shs3.5m which he used to open up a motor spare parts shop in Iganga town.
However he did not give up his job of cleaning around people’s homes and today he has his house and he tells his story to whoever cares to listen.
How he built
He bought his plot of land 7 years before he even thought of building and for all that time, he was using it for farming.
When his construction idea ripened, Famba vowed to do all it takes to build for his children and wife.
With all he did to earn a living, he spent part of it to buy building materials coupled with continuous saving for the future.
It took him seven years to build his house and no matter how slow he did it, he eventually achieved his dream house of three bedrooms, a sitting room, and dinning.
Although he did not make it to secondary school he values education. Faced with a challenge of having to pay school fees for his siblings, Famba did not relax he had to work hard to meet all his responsibilities.
He also says the prices of building materials are high and if one is not determined he cannot build.
Famba juggled many businesses to build his dream home
