CLM Update: Venite
Venite is part of a group of 100 CLM families supported by HTF that started on the path to a better life in September. Here’s an update on her progress.
Venite, her husband, and her children are taking great care of their livestock. They chose goats and poultry as their assets, but when it came time to buy, they changed their minds and asked to receive a pig with the money we would have used to buy them poultry. “We thought that we could make money by feeding a boar well, and selling it in June.”
The family is focused on savings right now, because two of her kids are scheduled to take the national primary school graduation exam this year, and sending a child to the examination can be expensive. So they deposit 100 gourds each week in the savings account and put another hundred gourds into a sòl. “We just have to make it through the week with 100 gourds and what we can find in our garden.”
