Goats improved Margaret's income

Margaret's with her goats

Margaret’s family did not have any source of income to sustain life with the basic needs. Therefore Margaret looked miserable with the maize flour she had received because she wanted money to buy other basic needs.  With funding from GlobalGiving RACOBAO decided to also support the same family with three goats to help her improve on her income.  She said, “I was living in a difficult life condition in my grass thatched house of mad and wattle with a small plot of land ¼ an acre and with no any animal to sustain my family income to be able to meet the basic needs like   food, clothing, home utensils, scholastic materials and paying school fees for my children. My life has changed and I thank God that RACOBAO gave me these goats, they are easily manageable and have quick returns, and very soon I will sell off the siblings and get money to buy basic needs  for my children ”.   

As RACOBAO we are very grateful to Global Giving for enhancing our capacity to reach such people.
