pigsty Wassorola

A pigsty for Wassorola. How can one best secure an additional income in Mali? With livestock. The easiest way is with pigs because they require little care and maintenance. Despite the predominantly Muslim population, there is a very high demand for pork meat on the markets. Emil, my local supervisor, had asked AfricaBougou for a micro-credit to go into the pig business and thus supply his family with further financial support. With the small loan he intended to build two pigpens and buy four pigs for a start. I could assist him in his project, accompanying and advising him. We opted for a structure made of cement blocks on a stone foundation because it was the easiest and most durable way. During the process of construction the whole village helped and I documented everything with a stop-motion movie.
