Wilma tells us that her family's situation was very unfortunate. She was not interested in country work and they had no animals. The family's diet was so precarious, the children regularly fell ill. And she lacked the money to care for them or send them to school on a regular schedule.
Wilma’s main activity was to buy some cassava in small markets in villages to make chikwangues and sell, but the income did not cover the family burden. The AFCA livestock project came at a desperate time. The family received training in agriculture, livestock, gardening and so much more. Having received the seeds of food crops, vegetable, rabbits and a water filter brought the joy of work for the entire family. Field products help Wilma’s family in consumption, school, dresses, caring for the children and housing.
Having returned their rabbits to the Breeding Centre, the rabbits help in consumption, selling to such an extent that children study normally. The health of the family is well. Combining field products and animals, they built a sustainable house that is in the finishing stage. Wilma says her family's life has changed and she is thankful that her family was selected for the project.
