  Subject: Just saying thanks

Hi Anne, am Joy Suubo, a 3V Vet in Serere county. Am just saying a million thanks for accepting to support the radio adverts. Can you believe I can now sell above 10L of Vectocid without struggling. By the way, it is not only the 3Vs that are now moving very fast, the entire business has noticeably improved. Anne will you believe if I tell that in the month of September, 2011 I made a profit of one million five hundred thousand Uganda shillings ( 1,500,000/=)($ 600) and in october, 2011 I made a profit of two million Uganda shillings (2,000,000/=)($ 800) across the counter excluding the money I make from the field!

Anne am out of words to use but am just saying thank you very much. Please express my gratitude to the entire IKARE. I keep thinking am the happiest vet that ever lived! For sure whenever I look at Vectocid, I just thank God for CEVA. God has really used Vectocid to reach to my business, almost every customer now comes for Vectocid then they also pick something else. One good thing with the people of this area is that once they start buying a product they will always buy it. Actually at times I wish CEVA was also manufacturing oxytetracycline 10% and 20% Long Acting for these sell so much all over.

Anne I have written this mail when my heart is full of joy. Am sorry for being so wordy but I just wanted to say thanks to you and the entire IKARE. May the Almighty God bless you through my Lord Jesus Christ. How I long to see you again!
Thank you.

Meet JOY SUUBO – “The Doctor”.

Reproduced from CEVA and IKARE

In September 2010 Joy Suubo became the first of what are now three female vets in the SOS team. Her veterinary shop and practice is located in the village of Serere.

Joy is not originally from this area or tribe and not knowing the local language she admits to feeling a little lonely and lost for the first few days, but after that, she put her mind meeting people in the village and establishing her veterinary shop. Having faced some initial suspicion – could such a young person and girl for that matter, really be a vet and know anything? – one year on, she is completely accepted and trusted by the community, who generally refer to her as “the Doctor”.

Joy Suubo

Having received no formal sales training, Joy seems to be a natural sales person. She makes a point of getting to know the villagers who give her tips on which livestock owners to visit as potential new customers. She also takes good care of her customers, making a point to visit them if they fall ill or the family is blessed with a baby and generally shares in village life.

Joy and her assistant man the shop 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, making sure the assistant is always there when Joy does her early morning and late afternoon visits (animals are normally out grazing during the day).

Joy’s sales have more than doubled since she started.  As a result, she recently told her parents not to worry about paying the school fees for her two younger brothers, as she can take care of these from the profits she makes from her in-field activities.  Joy does not only treat sick animals but also teaches farmers how to prevent them from falling sick in the first place.  After less than one year of operations she seems firmly settled in the area and well on her way of taking over the business.
