project committed to support 300 farmers through 19 farmer groups in 6

the study aims to:
 
        
Map
local potential market of piggery especially live pigs (seeds, breeder and
sow), fresh pork and its processed food, pig’s feed and piggery health
services (artificial insemination, castration, etc). Furthermore, this study
expected to provide information of predicted future market opportunity to
allow small scale farmers to proactive position themselves to seize them.

Provide
practical input towards piggery business and its related business sectors
with sufficient profitability, such as capital requirements are required to
set up business in a range of sectors, what is the growth potential,
survivability rates, etc.
 
        
Robust
analysis of the current and potential future business opportunities in the

specified target villages – what types of business opportunities are likely
to exist in the target villages in the near future? What types of business
are likely to decline in relevance / become over-saturated in the near
future?

 
 
 
AUDIENCE and USE
 
The
key audience of the study is the assisted farmer groups of the project area

dynamic as well support those interested in value chain of their piggery
products. However, the assessment report will also be aimed primarily at
