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 son and daughter. Regular droughts have made it increasingly difficult for them to feed their family through farming as they used to. But with a little bit of help, they have developed new ways of making the most of their land. 

They received a loan and training from community experts, funded by CAFOD, which helped them to start raising pigs, chickens and growing vegetables. They now keep chickens and pigs on the small plot of land, which they sell for a profit, and they have just started work on their garden tooKouen Kay has also started to grow chillies, which she also plans to sell to raise extra money for her family.
