Piggery

A piggery project can be either a group project or just leaded by a single member as a private project.
In the case of a group project the money for the financing, so for the stable and the first pigs comes out of the group found. The profit goes back into the same. At first the pigs will be shared among the interested members before they sell them on the market.
In the case of a private project the money also comes from the group but the profit goes to the project leader. Then after some time before a fixed date the member has to pay the borrowed money back to the group. Furthermore there is often the condition that the member has to give a fixed number of piglets to another interested member so that this one can also start a poultry project.
There are two different kinds to earn money out of this project. There is the possibility to sell piglets or pork, but it is more popular to sell the piglets on the market.
Piggery projects are very popular and to find in nearly every dioceses, but there are also some challenges. On the one hand the price for the food is quite expensive and the price for pigs / pork is somehow low, that makes it difficult to get a good profit out from the project. And on the other hand there is also a lack of expertise.
