Small Business for a Loving Grandmother

Fujie, 44, is a single mother. She raised her son alone after her husband left home many years ago. Her biggest regret was not being able to send her son to school to complete his studies. Since she hasn’t been in good health, she could not find work and her son had to stay home to care for her.

Now that her son is in his twenties and has a family of his own, Fujie hopes to be of help to them in any way she can. She hopes that she will be able to help her granddaughter to be able to go to school.

She was very grateful to have received two piglets to start her own small business. Even though she could not leave home because of her health, she can still generate income while also helping look after her little granddaughter.

She received the pigs in October 2020 and had them vaccinated immediately. They have been in good condition and Fujie is expecting them to breed by May this year. She is very excited and often talks to her granddaughter about it. Fujie has also regained her confidence as she is able to help her family financially.

If you want to be part of ending poverty for one family and help provide a sustainable future, US$180 provides training, program management & support, and 2 quality breeding sows to get them started.
