Pig Loan Project (Part 2 of 2)
The immediate goal of this project is to buy 30 pigs for the 6 poorest families in Omilling sub village - Sudan. This pig loan project will increase school enrollment rate in Omilling sub - Village. Most women are unable to afford study materials for their children so they force them to drop out of school. If the family has a certain income annually they would be able to send their children to school. Children who get education will help the development of the whole village.
Each pig costs $35 and every family that receives a pig will be able to earn an additional $250 (£500 Sudanese pounds per year by selling piglets). One mature female pig can give birth to at least 5-8 piglets per year. Therefore this added income will alleviate many problems simultaneously. For example, sales of cheap labor in the construction sites, teenagers work force and early marriage for girls. Meanwhile it can ease family basic needs such as tea leaf, salt, sugar, soap bar, and pay for study materials for their children which will have a major contribution to poverty alleviation.
Two pigs from the first litter will be given to additional families making this project grow over time.
Parentsí willingness and eagerness to send their children to school is an important factor in the family selection process for this project. Families who show more sincere interest in sending their children for further education will be more strongly considered as initial beneficiaries of this project.
