Piggery farming

Year: 2022
Country: Rwanda
Project Status: Funded
Impact Sector: Economic Opportunity
Project Investment: $4,745.22

Project Launch: 12-19-22

Funding from this project will support 71 neediest households in Bushoki Sector of Rulindo district in the Northern Province of Rwanda who have formed the Dushishoze group to start pig farming through the purchase and distribution of 71 pigs to 71 out of 85 households in this group (One pig to each household). The households will raise the pigs, obtain manure from the pig droppings to fertilise their crop gardens so they can grow enough food to feed their families. Once the pigs produce, this group will initiate a pig pass-on to give a piglet to another needy family in the group and larger community so they can also enjoy the benefits of livestock farming. Once the pigs have multiplied in number, families will earn additional income from sale of pig offsprings and surplus manure.
