Maicon has started his pig rearing project!

You may remember that a few months ago the VinB trustees approved a micro loan for Maicon, a student at the Agricultural College in Cristino Castro, to start a small pig rearing venture.

The project is well underway. Maicon’s has constructed a pig sty, purchased his pigs and the pigs are now pregnant.

Maicon is expecting a litter of pigs to take his project to the next level.

It is always heart warming to see young people like Maicon who are really focused on living and working in their rural community rather than migrating to the big and overcrowded cities of Brazil.

Well done Maicon, we look forward to seeing the little ones in due course!
