Success Can Start From As Little As An Atom

Milk goat or improved goat is a variety goats gaining popularity in our part if the world. I saw it with a neighbour who encouraged me to keep one. It has since made a lot of difference in my life and family. Health status of my family member has improved because of its high nutritive value. I am able to sell the milk and get income to maintain the goat and buy other goats. (Now I have three) I get organic manure from its droppings and this has improved my kitchen garden where I grow a variety of vegetables and fruits. These two give me income. I am proud this is something I can do for a long time, provoding for my family needs and improving on my life. I give them storiees to other community members.
