Case study: Goats bringing hope in Bangladesh
“I believe that one day I will be free from suffering.” Rubina, Bangladesh
Rubina is 38 years old and lives with her husband and daughter in Bangladesh. Her husband is disabled and unable to work. Rubina’s family rely solely on her income. In the past, they had no land to grow food on and Rubina was forced to beg for money to buy food.
Thanks to support from CAFOD, Rubina and her family have received a nanny goat, goat feed, and training on how to care for their goat. With baby goats on the way, Rubina should have plenty of goats to keep or sell as she chooses. In addition, she can sell any excess milk at the local market to help provide a steady income.
Goats are the perfect livestock for many families living in rural areas. They are relatively easy to look after and can provide up to 12 pints of nutritious milk a week. As Rubina has discovered, they also breed quickly. As well as her goats, Rubina is expecting to be granted access to some nearby land to grow vegetables on.
