Kuhkredit und Schweinezucht

Cow credit and pig breeding

Livestock farming plays a major role in rural regions of Vietnam, but many farmers lack the capital to purchase animals and maintain their stables. In a revolving credit scheme, farmers' associations receive either money or animals. With the offspring they breed, they can not only provide for themselves but also help other families, as the repayments are invested directly in new loans.
