Challenge

Women farmers at a great disadvantage with the problems of climate change, poor soil condition and the still rampaging Coronavirus pandemic in rural villages. There is a need to find alternative sources of income since traditional ones are no longer reliable. The goal is to provide several income sources rather than be dependent on one source. In this way sustainability is assured.

Solution

Goats are easy and cheap to raise and command high demand in the market as source of meat and protein. Women farmers will not be burdened in raising them as they do not require much labor. Goats are prolific and multiply easily with 2 breeding per year and with 1 to 2 young goats per breeding. Market for goats is easy and demand is always high. Goats are sources of income and nutrition for the family.

Long-Term Impact

Times are changing and with climate change and the advent of diseases, the need to improve the incomes and nutrition of families is imperative. There is an urgency to equip farmers especially women with several sources of income in order to improve their situation in life.
