Case study: How fish are helping Florence
“I can send my children to school now, and I can feed all my family.” Florence, Zambia
Florence is a single mother living in northern Zambia. Following the death of her husband, Florence struggled to make a living. She had a small farm and worried about being able to feed her two children. Despite waking early each morning and working all day on her land, Florence was only growing just enough to survive – nothing more.
Thankfully, Florence began farming fish. She told us: “I was interested in fish farming because it’s a business that I knew would help me make a living. You can get fish to eat, but you can sell them too.”
CAFOD provided tools and training, as well as 500 fish, so Florence could build a successful, productive pond. Thanks to the your gifts, and Florence’s hard work, the fish have flourished. Florence can now sell fish at the local market, and with the money she earns she can send her children to school. Florence has also shared her training and knowledge with her neighbours, so they can farm fish too. Now, Florence’s whole community has the chance to build a better future.
