Case study: Bringing home the bacon
“My income has improved this year by selling piglets. We have some savings.” Kouen Kay, Cambodia
Dos La and Kouen Kay live in rural Cambodia with their young children. Regular droughts have made it increasingly difficult for them to feed their family through farming. However, with a little bit of help, they have developed new ways of making the most of their land.
Dos La and Kouen Kay received a loan and training from CAFOD-funded local experts. This helped them to start raising pigs and chickens, as well as growing vegetables, on their small plot of land.
Kouen Kay has also started growing chillies that she plans to sell to raise even more money for her family.
