Simple beginnings

Pedro, a student at the Agricultural College in Cristino Castro, gets his chicken rearing project underway.

Many of the projects we support start in a very small way with very simple beginnings. Pedro, like many other young farmers studying at the Agricultural College, asked VinB to help him invest in his family’s small, subsistence farms. Pedro put a project proposal together. The proposal was then evaluated by Oliveira, our coordinator and Agronomist in Cristino Castro. Oliveira considered the project to be viable and beneficial to the recipient and the local community. He then sent the proposal to the VinB trustees for their consideration. After careful consideration the trustees approved the project and made the ┬áresources available.

Pedro’s project is now beginning to take shape in very simple steps. Here are the first three that Pedro has undertaken since receiving the go ahead from the trustees.
