A business reselling goats could support my family; I just need funds to get started!

After a recent health issue, I'm ready to support my family. I have experience selling goats; a few a month could pay for my children's food & school.

My need and situation

My name is Agnes and I am a 37 year old wife and mother with children ages 22, 18, 15, and 5 months. With the birth of my last child I had an obstructed labor and got a painful, leaking fistula. I just got surgery so I am now dry and repaired and ready to return to earning income. Before my fistula I bought goats for $50 each and resold them for $53. I could sell 5-6 goats per month and pay for my children to eat and go to school.

My goal is to buy several goats, care for them, and resell them. I will use the profit to feed my family and pay my children’s school fees.

I need funds ($150) to purchase several goats to resell for income to raise my newborn and support my family.

Meeting this need will help me return to work after obstetric fistula. My family needs my income and I am starting over after not being able to work.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Agnes fund this need.

Agnes attended our farm and business skills training program with her 5 month old in tow. She is very motivated to create a better life for herself and her children. Her determination is impressive. Beyond Fistula will be supporting her and following up with her.
