She has not given up. Please read to the end. If you can help her, Please do.
A 22-year-old young girl sent a message to me after watching our videos on our YouTube channel where she saw a young lady talking about her poultry farm, You can click the link to watch the video https://youtu.be/tuh-m8lyIGw
She told me how she started her poultry farm in a house her late parents left for her, So she sleeps in one of the rooms and uses the living room to keep her birds.
After saving 180,000frs CFA she bought the drinkers, feeders, and some birds to start. It was going well until when everything fell apart. Just within a week, the birds started dying, With nothing left to treat her birds. She resulted to mixing their feed with bitter leaf and some natural herbs with the hopes of curing her birds
Within two weeks she lost everything, In her search for answers she watched our videos and reached out to us. After explaini
ng her story to us, there was one thing she said.
I KNOW I FAILED AND RIGHT NOW I HAVE NOTHING, AM AN ORPHAN BUT I WILL NOT GIVE UP. I DONT WANT TO GO OUT AND LIVE A PROMISCUOUS LIFE AS MY FRIENDS DO. THE LADY IN THAT VIDEO IS MY INSPIRATION 😭
So many youths in #Cameroon and Africa are passionate about farming they want to feed their nation and make money from agriculture but the challenges they go through are unbelievable.
We will be training her on how to properly manage a poultry farm and later visit her farm and find out where she made mistakes the challenge is raising capital for her to start all over again but we can't do much, We get very little funding and most times we have to use our resources to train and empower farmers.
I cry when young #cameroonians write to me with so much passion ready to change this nation but have no means. I always encourage and motivate them, I make them see the opportunities this nation and continent have to offer but sometimes you get to see reasons why many are frustrated and make perilous journeys through the Mediterranean sea.
Just like this young lady let's not lose hope, She says she wants to be able to have one of the biggest poultry farms in #africa and I believe her. We can help her achieve her dreams.
