There are good examples of viability gap funding to women entrepreneurs who submit bankable proposals for commercial goat rearing.

Farmer based organisations can play a key role in accessing formal credit for their members. As smallholders are ‘small’ by default, it is better for them to be part of coalitions such as coops.

One of the reasons for non availability of formal credit for smallholders in Nepal is lack of business approach. Nearly 96% of farmer households produce (milk) mainly for home consumption. No commercial production, no business skills

how does your proposed animal enterprise interact with the crop production? That is how much time and effort are you suggesting be devoted to animal care, and will that take away from crop management? what compromises will this result in for both animal and crops?

Final call for questions! We're ready for Q&A

For the insurance product, did you have issues with inclusion of women? Do women have access to mobile phones as much as men in Kenya?
Livestock Lab
01:17:32
This presentation, and a recording, will be posted soon at https://livestocklab.ifas.ufl.edu/events/asfwebinars/ The previous 2 webinars are there also

Kenya adopted IBLI into its safety net program. This presumably is helping to socialize the concept but also potentially presents insurance as a public service rather than a private good. What are the implications for longer term sustainability? Use of top up farmer pay premiums perhaps?
Hung Nguyen
01:20:56
Thanks all speakers for your great presentation! It is glad to see Nathan presenting IBLI program!
Livestock Lab

And thank you to Hung who spoke in webinar 2, and all previous speakers.

The example presented by Sarah is very popular in Vietnam. Vietnam government uses this in the poverty reduction program in many poor provinces for ethic minority farmers.
Hung Nguyen
01:22:57
But in Vietnam it is cattle, not goat!
Dick Tinsley
01:24:42
Thank you, I usually think of smallholder farmers being greatly over extended and labor very scare as well as the 4000 kcal/day to fuel that labor. this results in many compromises in both crop and animal management for which the animals suffer the most. Here is an attempt to look at the intergration of crops and animals from Ethiopia: https://smallholderagriculture.agsci.colostate.edu/ethiopia-diet-analysis/

Thanks Dick for your thoughts and sharing the link. It is true that in the SwaziBeef project, when yellow maize was grown, the decision between feeding the farmers or the cattle was not easy for many groups!
Andrew Bisson
01:29:49
Agree - labor productivity is key - aim to move up into higher value chains which livestock represent as well as the risk spreading value in mixed crop-livestock systems
