At the Sub-county, the RDC was led by the Community Development Officer (CDO), Hon Councilor for Oliejo Parish as well as the Parish PDM SACCO chairperson.

According to the RDC, the team sampled five beneficiaries for goat and piggery enterprises. These included Nyeko Robert, Adokorach Florence, Rwotomiyo Barnabas, Munu Doreen and Paliel Robert.

Later, the RDC Paul Eseru urged the people of Oliejo who were gathered in the meeting to utilise PDM funds in accordance with the plans so that in the period of two years ahead they be in a position  to realise its merits and hence would also be in position to pay back the loan in time.
