Ms. Sittana, AlGeneid Community


Sittana is 30 years old, widow with 5 children, 4 (2 sons 2 daughters) in basic school and a boy in the kindergarten. She lost her husband by car accident at Saudi Arabia 2 years ago. Sittana was selected by CDC for meeting project criteria. She was given 10 sheep and animal husbandry training. One sheep died, the 9 remaining sheep gave birth to 11 kids in the first round and 5 in the second round. Now she has 16 female sheep, 5 of them pregnant (the highest record among animal owners)

Sittina is managing her business by herself supported by her children’s grandfather and uncle who feed the sheep from their farm. The 2 sons take sheep for grazing after school and also milking them. She sold in one year 4 lambs for SDG 2,600, built a new room and purchased fodder stock. She paid 3 installments (SDG 300) to CTF though she knows that it was supposed to be much more. But she regularly pay the weakly contribution to the women saving fund (10-25 SDGs).

She believes that thereasons behind her success are that: she is very keen to take the responsibility for her children education, she is getting family support, she made the maximum use of the training she received and the timing of her animals pregnancy during the rainy season when fodder and water are free, improves animal conditions and reduce management costs. With sick animals, she follow the vet advice, keeping it isolated, knows the symptoms, inform the para-vet and buy drugs from the town market. Sittana keeps animals in a fence outside and maintains a very clean house

She said despite living among animals since childhood, it is the first time to feel the sense of ownership and became more attracted to animals and knowledgeable about sheep rearing and can easily recognize the sick. The case proves that failures are not linked to livestock ownership but main problem relate to how it is managed, and that low contribution to CTF is not caused by failure to make profit but how the fund is managed

    Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?

    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?

    I get so much lately it's driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.
