This project strengthens goat livestock breeding for young households in the villages of SEBELE and KIKONDE in the territory of Fizi, South Kivu Province in the East of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The good practice of goat breeding is one of the sources of important revenue for the peasants of our country. Thus, we will train and then grant the rotational credit of 400 goats to 130 young households in these two villages with four goats per household.
Farmers in our country are neither supervised nor monitored. Not trainings to improve their production, in short, they are abandoned to their sad spells. Young farmers, on the other hand, underestimate agricultural activity because they are non-remunerative, preferring to go to the urban centers or engage in mafia activities and the way of emigration. From goat livestock breeding, their income can change significantly and opt to stay in the village.
We will first select the first 130 beneficiaries (young households) of the goat credits, with 65 young households per target village. Then the trainings on the habitation of the goats, how to feed them, how to care for them and how to constitute in cooperative of the breeders. Will follow the purchase and the granting of the animals and the kits of the veterinary products. At the end of a year, each beneficiary will have multiplied his herd of 3 heads by 4 to count at least 12 heads in his asset
This project is a rotating credit, After eighteen months already the number of beneficiaries will certainly double, it will go from 130 households to at least 260 households. Goat meat being the most consumed in the environment, beneficiaries of these credits will increase the production of goat meat in the environment and subsequently increase their income. The breeder's cooperatives will be formed and new ideas on the rearing of large livestock will be born.
