05 June 2020, Marovovonana, Madagascar - Nirina Razafindravelo, businesswoman, resident of the Malagasy village of Marovovonana. Nirina has started several small businesses, in an effort to expand her income and do better by her family. She has tried her hand at selling smoked fish and spices, and also at seamstressing. But the market is small for niche products and services, and the earnings far from dependable. It is under the SWM programme umbrella that Nirina has been offered a place in the poultry rearing workshops taking place in her village.Armed with confidence-boosting skills and start-up tips, Nirina is determined to set up her own poultry business - for family consumption to begin with, and with an eventual option to expand into sales. Chicken meat and eggs both supply key proteins, reducing the need to continue hunting in the forest.
