We have supported the startup of two chicken farms in Eswatini, funded with microfinance loans outside the donation to All out Africa foundation. The initiative came from two young women working in the project, Eunice and Xolile
We have now received an update on the projects with financial status. The farms have been constructed and the first chickens will ready for the market before christmas as a result of the work of two fantastic women. It can hardly be better than this!
Report from Eunice:
“The chicken business was started on the 4th of November 2020 and I am happy to let you know that the chickens will be fully matured and ready for the market on the 18th December.
It is not always easy when you start something new as I experienced a few challenges and lost 16 chickens due to the heat. I am optimistic that the business will grow in the future from what it is today. I also look forward into doing a short course in poultry rearing in order to sharpen my skills and help me get the best breed. I am looking forward into expanding the chicken shed as soon as I start generating income.
Thank you so much for always having us in your thoughts, especially during these difficult times.”
