Case study: Dona Helen's perfect pigs
"CAFOD is helping me make a living. I have a kitchen garden to grow fruit and vegetables and I also have pigs." Dona Helen, Nicaragua
Survival can be a struggle for farming families in rural Nicaragua. However, life for Dona Helen and her family, has improved dramatically in recent years.
As members of a community group supported by CAFOD, they secured an income generation loan to help them buy pigs, fruit trees and seeds for her family garden.
Breeding pigs is a wonderful way for Dona Helen to make a living, helping her to give her children greater opportunities in life.
