Goats Not Taken for Granted

Goat Loan Programme, Jordan

 

Fatmeh has received six goats, five female and one male. Three of the goats are currently pregnant. A fourth goat was pregnant but unfortunately lost its kid. During pregnancy, there is no production of milk.

 

Fatmeh is also doing repairs on the barn to make it a healthier environment for her goats. She feeds the goats each morning and, later, she would take them out to graze and then feed them again at night in the barn.
