Members of the pig breeding group in Kasis, Haiti have been working incredibly hard these past three months. Thanks to training and the purchase of a few starter pigs, group members have been breeding pigs and selling the offspring in markets. This valuable source of new income is helping the organization breed even more healthy pigs and to invest their profits into a community microcredit fund. Investing profits in a microcredit fund is incredibly important for project sustainability. This community “slush fund” will allow the organization to pay for foreseen and unforeseen costs incurred and to make small loans to members. Many women in the group use these loans to purchase goods for merchant activities and to monetize their crops.
Thanks to your support, these Haitians living in rural Haiti have gone from hoping to breed pigs to making pig breeding a vibrant part of their community. Help Lambi Fund reach the last phase of our funding goals as we work to monitor the project for sustainability, purchase more pigs and provide additional training. Creating opportunities for incomes is an essential part of developing communities in Haiti. Cheers!
