Ha Chonapase Pig Project
This is one of Action Lesotho micro-enterprise projects. A cooperative of 14 members who are breeding, rearing and fattening pigs for the meat market have been trained in pig rearing.
They have built stys and now they are working to expand their business by building farrowing houses.
Action Lesotho provided a loan which supported start-up costs. This loan can be paid back to Action Lesotho either through work on other Action Lesotho projects or in cash.
This group have chosen to start repaying their loan by building keyhole gardens for sick clients on the Malimpo Feeding Programme.
