Harvest Trading Company - Quality Community Products

Artisan - OlongBorn in Gulu in northern Uganda, Odong now lives in Mbarara, Uganda, with his wife and four children. In 1998, someone suggested Odong Wilson and his friend Richard try making products out of cow horn. Although Odong was originally a mechanic, the two men began experimenting with cow horn to see what they could make. Evernaully they began making bangles and earrings, and customers liked the work and asked for more products. After several years of working for a co-op, Odong opened his own business in 2007. He makes his products from Ankole cow horns found in the Mbarara and Kampala regions of southwest Uganda. Odong is proud that “my business is expanding, and I’ve trained many people who have also started their own business and are doing well.”
