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 son, Josua, 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.
Breeding pigs is a wonderful way for Dona Helen to make a living and give Josua greater opportunities in life. Josua is currently in his last year of primary school and wants to be a vet when he is older.
