Group Name: Pakiteng
Number of Years with WILK: 2011-2012
Pakiteng is a name for somebody who gives somebody else a cow. So, if I give you a cow, you’ll call me Pakiteng as a way to remember the generosity of my gift. This group started in 2012 and was trained but did not meet the eligibility requirements for a loan in 2013. One of the keys to success for the Livestock as Business project is to ensure that only groups who have committed themselves to change receive loans. This is part of the reason why we’ve never had a loan that wasn’t repaid.
