Pastoral Women's Council PWC Tanzania
“I was fortunate to be one of the people trained by PWC as a CAHW (Community Animal Health Worker), after which I established a veterinary shop.
“This area is in drought right now though, so the livestock have moved areas. During this time I have changed my shop to sell consumables instead. I have learnt that it is important to be flexible in business!
“Once the livestock returns I will retain this business as I have a good customer base, and I will open a second shop to re-establish the veterinary medical store.
“My husband and I run the business together. My involvement in the VICOBA has really strengthened the partnership with my husband. It has strengthened us as equals. It has also supported my family to help support my children’s wellbeing and schooling.”
