Florence's Group's story

Florence’s group is made up of 5 members, all of who are women from the same village. All members of this group rear pigs and keep local chickens, and they also grow crops. The leader of this group is Florence (first from right); she is 25 years old, married, and has two children who are three and five years old.

Since 2010 Florence has earned her income through sales of pigs for meat and eggs from her chicken. She faces a challenge of slow growth of her pigs. She believes that this is because she rears local poor breeds.

Florence attained training in farming-as-a-business and acquired new skills to improve her piggery and poultry projects.

She is requesting a loan to buy an exotic male piglet. This way she will get quality piglets and convert her business to rearing exotic pigs. She will also use a portion of the loan to buy high-quality feed for her pigs and chicken.

She has a dream of educating her children to university and supporting her husband to start a retail shop.

In this group: Dinah, Florence, Harriet, Margret, Annet
