Nothing works faster than a cow to help a family break free of poverty and establish a sustainable productive livelihood. In KWDT self managed group, the women decide who should have a cow, provide training in husbandry and make micro finance available for part funding of the cost of the cow. The beneficiary undertakes to pay her share of the costs back over 3 years and passes any female calves back to the group for another women on the waiting list.
