IGA Beneficiaries Build Poultry Business

During this reporting period, there was not enough funding to recruit new IGA beneficiaries. With the funds received, Pathfinder provided additional support to the women we supported last quarter (see below). The women’s poultry production business is progressing and they were supplied with special hybrid hens from the sub-city agricultural office. In addition, the urban agricultural office has been providing them with all of the necessary technical support needed to launch their business. In just the few months that they have been operating their business they have become role models for other women in their community who would like to open similar businesses. The beneficiaries are preparing their business to take advantage of the coming Ethiopian Easter by selling more hens.
