To give young people a perspective and to not leave them behind was the motivation of WEECE to introduce another project involving pig farming and micro loans.
The group “Twende” – which means “Let’s go” in Swahili – consists of 12 youngsters and started in 2017. It is not a classic VICOBA project as they are not acquiring shares and are working on one joint project which is pig farming. However, with the profit from the pig farming they can grant each other micro loans.
For the last years the project has been running successfully which helps the members to become independent by generating income.
