Waiting for More Goats

Goat Loan Programme, Jordan


Um Battma Village 


We started with this family in September. They had received 11 goats. Um Oqaab is married. She and her husband are elderly and have three children, two boys and one girl. 


Their oldest son studies at the university. Their second son just finished high school and their youngest daughter is home.

This family used to own goats, but they lost all the goats to disease. They don’t have any other income source. Now they are waiting for the pregnant goats to give birth, as it’s the season.

Um Abdullah has 16 sheep. All of them are pregnant, and they have three newborns. 


Um Battma Village


Um Salem has 11 goats. Two goats are pregnant, and there are two newborns. 


Thank you!
