A Goats Bank
A goat is a great gift because it produces milk for families to drink, and provides income when sold.
In Burundi, ‘goat banks’ provide farmers with an opportunity to invest in the future of their community.
A group of farmers are given three goats, two female and one male.
Each member of the goat bank agree to provide food and shelter for their animal, and that they will pass on one of the kids from the first ‘next generation’ to the next member of the group.
This revolving fund ensures that a whole community benefits from one goat.
