PROVIDING TRAINING AND SUPPORT

Chetona Fish Hatchery sells 12 varieties of fish spawn to fish nurseries, fish farmers and traders, and is the current market leader in the region, with a great reputation in the local community. There are plans to grow the annual revenue from £44,662 to £81,289 by 2019, which requires an investment in new infrastructure.

With EDP’s support, the enterprise plans to increase farmers’ and particularly women’s (about 20% of all fish farmers in Kurigram) income and resilience through “modern” fish farming, by providing training, supporting subsistence farmers to grow into commercial fish farmers and supporting women’s groups to establish 10 new women-led nurseries by 2019.

Other EDP projects: Ethiopia, Honduras, Nepal, Rwanda
