Rearing sheep is a good business opportunity in rural Ghana. Demand for sheep is high, and sheep-rearing work can be done alongside other work like arable farming. But it is expensive to start such a business. Providing start-up costs can enable someone to take control of their own livelihood, and provide for their family.
The demand for sheep in Mampong is very high for both breeding and consumption. During festivities (Christmas, New Year, Eid al-Fitr, etc.), the demand always surpass the supply. So this is a good business to have.
Kwasi has prepared a document detailing the veterinary procedures, in conjunction with a local vet. He has also produced a spreadsheet showing that such a business can become self-sustaining after the first year.
A first instance of this project is up and running!
