While I was at the market, we sold one pig for 500 kwacha! This is amazing news!
The buyer was from the Zambian National Service which has an office about a mile down the main road. According to their website, 'the Zambia National Service (ZNS) is a defence force wing that is mandated to train citizens to serve the republic, develop infrastructure, enhance national food security and contribute to the social economic development.’ The ZNS worker said if they enjoy the pig, they will consider buying a pig from Shamiyoyo every weekend to feed the ZNS at the local outpost. If this works out, the Shamiyoyo pig farm will have its first steady source of income and provide some consistent funds for pig feed.
