Pig Pens

In May of 2012 we constructed four pig pens for widows in the village of Santiago. The intent of this project is to provide a small business opportunity for families by raising their own pigs and selling them for meat. The profits once again are used to repeat the cycle and the surplus to support the family. This project has proven to be very successful. The cost to build a pig pen; purchase 2 piglets; 100lb bag of feed is $400. This includes the employment of two Guatemalan workers and three or four volunteers. It takes just over one day to complete this project.
