II.THE SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT

This project is called “PIG FARM PROJECT” based on rearing of pigs in advanced manner. It is located in Bweyeye Sector, Rusizi District, and Western Province. The membership of this project decided to keep pigs because of people’s negligence in keeping this type of animal. This negligence led to shortage of pork, fine nutritive manure for soil fertilization and site for scientific research especially on pigs. The plan of activities includes housing for these animals, feeding, caring, curing and selling pig products. The above activities will take 28 months. The coordination of this project is excepting to work with all people surrounding piggery farm project, especially youth.

III. BACKGROUNDS AND PROBLEM ANALYSIS

According to climatic factors and geographical location of the region on which this project is going to be carried out, some pigs that like cold altitudes will be favored and others that like hot altitudes will not be favored. The region on which the project is going to be carried out is also a high mountainous whereby some type of pigs that like low land will again not be favored. Therefore while choosing or selecting the type of pigs to be reared, the above factors have to be considered. 

3.1. The problems expected to be solved by the project

  • Poverty among membership of the project;
  • Shortage of pork and manure at markets around the area;
  • Lacking of scientific research on pigs for various people of different agriculture institutions;
  • Shortage of knowledge of keeping pigs for people around the piggery farm project;
  • Shortage of soil fertility due to lack of important manure which spread decrease of agricultural productivity;
  • Unemployment of people around piggery farm project.

The above problems existed in western Province since long ago because of tradition beliefs, religion especially Moslems and lack of appropriate knowledge of keeping pigs will be solved by the project.

3.2. Solution expected to the project

3.2.1. Solution to the above problems is as follows below:

  • Poverty among membership will be solving by selling of young born piglets, pork and manure whereby money will earned.
  • Fertilization on cultivable or arable land will be done by using farm yard manure from piggery farm;
  • After setting this project in Rusizi District, research site on pigs will be availed to various people from different agriculture institutions;
  • People surrounding the farm are expected to acquire knowledge of how pigs are cared and how profitable there are;
  • Some people around the farm will be privileged to have jobs from the piggery.
IV.OBJECTIVES AND DESCRIPTION
4.1. The main objectives of the project
  • To improve soil fertility and soil productivity;
  • To improve agriculture techniques
  • To combat animal diseases;
  • To combat poverty among the membership and pig production at the market within the region and country wide.

The above objectives will be achieved as follows;
People surrounding piggery farm project will be motivated to rear pigs and taught how useful and importance they are on them. Therefore they will be encouraged to rear pigs. The coordination of piggery farm will try by all means to find market for pigs products especially hotels, bars, restaurants for pork.
People neighbor the piggery farm who are jobless will have an opportunity of being employed by the project. Therefore their standards of living will be improved.

V. STRATEGIES AND PLAN OF ACTIVITIES

The following activities are expected to be done during the execution of the project:

  1. Purchase of the land ;
  2. Fencing the land ;
  3. Building piggery houses;
  4. Purchase of piglets;
  5. Purchase of piggery equipments;

VII. MONITORING AND EVALUATION

According to plan activities, profit is available through efficiency work whereby pork and manure will be sold with different Boucher’s and farmers. Because of different services surrendered to various people the project is totally expecting to reduce poverty while increasing pig production.
In addition to knowledge of keeping pigs will be acquired whereby every one who wants to visit the farm will be allowed to visit it.

VIII. INSTITUTION CAPACITY

The project is composed of:

  • The general assembly
  • The executive committee
  • The audit
  • The counselors
8.1. General assembly

 The assembly is composed of all umbrella membership and founder membership.
The total members of this project are 10 including:

  • 3 women
  • 7 men
8.2. Executive committee

It includes:

  • Chair person
  • Vice chair person
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer

This coordinates all activities carried out within and outside the project.

8.3. The audit

The audit is composed of 3 auditors who are responsible for auditing the budget and the chaise of the project. These are qualified people in finance and accounting. They supervise the entry and exit of the funds; it is composed of 2 men and 1 woman.

8.4. The counselors

These are responsible for control any error that may exist in the dynamic of the project. They are 4 including 4 men who are also qualified. The above organization indicates that the project has adequate administrative and technical to carry out the work of rearing pigs.

VIII. FEASIBILITY AND STABILITY

If the project is financially and physically stable the general objectives will be fulfilled; and if the amount of fund required is available a number of membership project will be able to do all activities governing the project.
Therefore in terms of finance this project is stable because the sources of funds are visible. It has also young men and women which indicate that the project is physical stable.

IX. PROJECT BUDGETS AND PROFITABILITY STUDY

A female pig produces 2 times a year; it can produce 10 to 15 piglets; it takes 3 months for a female pig to produce. In order to know the interest of the project for 3 years, the following calculation will give the estimation profit for pig production.

  • First year of production;

Profit = Total revenue – Total expenses
Therefore: 1 male pig copulate 20 females = 2 males pigs/40 females
Number of females produce = 40 pigs – 2males = 38females
1 female produces 10 to 15 piglets
38 females produces = 38 x 10 = 380 piglets/3months

After 3 months piglets are to be sold

Each piglet costs = 25’000 RWF
Therefore total sales = 25’000 RWF x 380 = 9’500’000 RWF
Total sales per year = 9’500’000 RWF x 2 = 19'000’000RWF
Profit = Total revenue – Total expenses
Profit = 19'00’000RWFR – 4’705’386RWFR = 14’294’614rwfr

  • Second year

    Profit = Total revenue – (land + purchase of piglets)
    Total expenses = Total budget – (land + building + purchase of piglets)
                               = 4’705’386 RWF – (650’000 + 1’150’000RWF + 800’000 RWF)
                               = 2’105’386rwfr
    Profit = Total revenue – Total expenses
              = 14’294’614RWF – 2’105’386RWFR
              = 12’189’228RWFR

  • Third year

Profit = Total revenue – (land + purchase of piglets)
Total expenses = Total budget – (land + building + purchase of piglets)
                           = 4’705’386 RWFR – (650’000RWFR + 1’150’000RWFR + 800’000 RWFR)
                           = 2’105’386RWFR
Profit = Total revenue – Total expenses
          = 14’294’614RWF – 2’105’386RWFR
          = 12’189’228RWFR

Net profit in three years = 14’294’614RWFR+12’189’228RWFR +12’189’228RWF=38’673’070RWFR

In the period of 02/07 till 10/09 we have spend the amount of 683 500 FRW. Probably you think we have spend a lot on feeding and medication. 
This is mainly due to the climate circumstances. It is an unexceptional long dry season and diseases amongst the animals. Therefore we have taken the needed precautions to protect the farm by providing uniforms for our workers and by giving concentrated feeding to our animals, to avoid contamination of the animals by diseases coming from other farms.

Conclusion: We can state that our way of working is successful. All sows have been covered. So 23 out of 23 sows will give birth during the months of November, December and January.
At that time I'll send you a next evaluation.

December 2010

Quarterly report about the evaluation of the project

This report covers the meetings of November 17th 2010, December 6th 2010 as well as the meeting held yesterday to evaluate the evolution in the “Pig project” financially supported by Vleugels van Hoop vzw, as well as to follow up on decisions taken in the lasts meetings. On the agenda of the last meeting we noted down following points:

  1. Evaluate how ‘healthy’ the “Pig project” is.
  2. Increase the capacity of the farm, develop new activities, as agriculture, aquaculture, bee hiving and protecting the environment.
  3. Efficient steering of the “pig project”.
  4. Evaluate the use of the funding by the vzw.
  5. Varia.

Agenda point 1: Evaluate how healthy the “pig project” is
We exchanged thoughts about the live of the animals in general. There are negative but also positive remarks:

  • Sows and piglets are loosing weight because of insufficient feeding and bed quality of the feeds. This mainly because of the failure of the farmers.
  • The irresponsibility of the veterinarian who is supposed to do follow-up on the farm, causing the failure of the farmers, bad use of the medication on the farm and rivalry amongst the farmer and pig holders who conspire together against the vet.
  • A considerable amount, as shown in the table below, is spend monthly on feeding and security of the farms.
  • Abortion, early birth giving, stillborn piglets because of all kind of faults and the  quarantine.

P.S : After discussing this topic, needed decision are taken to control the monthly expenditures and the general health on the farm:

  • We’ll look for an extra employer to assist the 2 others on the farm. Somebody will be employed on trial basis during December and January.
  • The animals will be distributed amongts the members of the cooperative. The pigs will be kept till the beneficiaries have signed the agreements. This has to be finalised in January. 2 or 3 animals will stay on the farm to solve the earlier mentioned problems.
  • The cooperation with the current veterinarian will be stopped. We try to set up a cooperation with a vet from the Bweyeye sector.

    Agenda point 2 : Increase the capacity of the farm, develop new activities, as agriculture, aquaculture, bee hiving and protecting the environment.
    During this topic we discussed all incomes which the cooperative could generate, instead of only concentrating on the pig holding:
  • Agricultural activities,
  • aquaculture,                                 
  • bee hiving,
  • protecting the environment.

In this context we started to plant feeding plants, shrubs (carriandra sp) and passionfruitplants.
We also appointed people who are responsible for the project and will garantuee the follow up. They also have to execute the decisions taken during the meetings.

November 2012

Pig breeding in the farmhouse of Bweyeye

  • Production of 40 piglets divided among 20 families and orphans-family heads
  • 20 piglets sold for the benefit of the surrounding population (other than the suffering families)
  • Pay contribution health insurance for 45 persons spread over 12 families
  • Pay school fee for 3 pupils

The climate change at the beginning of the project, causing the death of the sows brought us to the idea to sell all the pigs and to switch to cows. Thanks to the council of Vleugels van Hoop, however we managed to resist this risky idea, soon we switch over to the project beekeeping

September 2011

I've been to Bweyeye to prepare the Agricultural season 2012.
We have been able to harvest an area of 1ha of corn.
Thanks to the support of 'Vleugels van Hoop' we can hope on a successful realisation of both projects.
Related to the pig project we can report an increase of 32 piglets.
