Sustainable Assistance for Rural Fish Farming and Small Enterprise Development (SARFF & SED)

This project will train and support poor and marginal farmers to cultivate quick growing fish in their fallen ponds for increased family nutrition and income. It also aims to help small entrepreneurs to expand their businesses and create employment opportunities for the local poor and unemployed. This program is very promising for holistic development as World Concern helps the people to build up capacity by providing training and credit for their fish cultivation and small entrepreneurs to become socially and economically self-reliant.
