BUHERA – Some 18 families from Ward 19, under Chief Nyashanu in Buhera who have started cattle fattening projects are not regretting the initiative as they have begun to get some windfalls.
 Kufumaishungu Cattle Fatteners are also into gardening.
The project was initiated by an international humanitarian organisation called GOAL which operates under the Irish Aid organisation and is also supported by SAT.
Kufumaishungu vice chairman Lovemore Taisiyepi said his organisation currently has reserves of  $3 000 cash which will be used to buy more beasts for fattening.
The project started in May 2013 when GOAL came into their ward and taught them cattle fattening and how to make a living out of it. The villagers were also trained on how to treat cattle during the fattening period.
They were provided with treated poles  by SAT to be used in building the feedlot.
The group started with 53 people but this figure dropped to 20 after a resolution that each of the members bring a beast for fattening.
The 20 beasts were fattened for 90 days and sold to Surrey Abattoir.
"We really thank GOAL and SAT for bringing enlightenment to our ward. Now we have more sources of income. The project is helping both those that are doing it and the villagers from whom we buy cattle for fattening," said Taisiyepi.
Caston Chihwa (76) one of the group members of the Kufumaishungu project said that cattle fattening is a good project and people should try it and they will never go wrong.
The project uses solar energy to pump water for both the cattle and the garden. However, the pump is sometimes failing to pump enough water.
