Promoting Goat Farming as a Business

Michview Enterprises is promoting sustainable farming of goats as a business in Mutare, Makoni, Kwekwe, Shurugwi, Gokwe South and Mt. Darwin districts. The objective of the project which runs from March 2016 to February 2017 is to provide a sustainable link between smallholder farmers and lucrative goat meat markets both nationally and internationally.

The project will benefit from increased revenue by engaging at least 1200 smallholder farmers in a formal profitable goat marketing value chain. In addition, the project is promoting the establishment of transparent goat aggregation and buying practices amongst smallholder farmers and is focused on  introducing and adopting improved breeds for increased revenues and promoting smallholder farmer participation in local and export markets.
