More information about this loan

This loan is part of SSLLP's integrated agricultural package, which provides groups of borrowers with dairy cows, piglets and relevant training in dairy and pig farming. These loans are used to enable families of smallholder farmers with minimal sources of income to start piggery businesses by providing them with two sows and one boar, materials for construction of housing for the pigs, and a start-up veterinary kit. Loans will be repaid in cash from sale of piglets after a 5-month grace period. By supporting this loan you are helping create new opportunities for smallholder farmers.
