Sector
Livestock
Granted project support
Module 1
Completed

The owner of Daryeel is part of the Swedish Somali diaspora and identified a lack of eggs in the city of Borama in Somaliland during one of his trips to Somaliland. The SSBP grant was used to travel to Somaliland to conduct a feasibility study of starting commercial egg and chicken meat production as well as raising livestock. The study showed that a few big actors in Hargeisa and Ethiopia deliver most of the eggs to Borama but that a combination of demand being greater than supply throughout the region and difficulty to transport eggs results in infrequent availability of eggs in the city. Daryeel therefore plans to open a poultry farm with 850 chickens initially on the outskirts of Borama as soon as possible.

Module 1
Completed

EHPF Somali used the SSBP grant to conduct a feasibility study in Somaliland. Their plan is to start a poultry farm to produce and sell eggs and chicken meat locally instead of importing these from Ethiopia and Yemen. While in Somaliland, they visited a poultry farm that had not been successful in order to identify what problems they had encountered. The lesson learnt from this was not to save in on feed because this can result in poor health of the chickens and low productivity. EHPF Somali plan to use reusable plastic boxes to minimize negative environmental impact. The next step for EHPF is to set up operations in Somaliland.

Hirsiguled used the SSBP grant to travel to Somaliland and investigate the need for, and feasibility of, washable sanitary pads in Somalia. The study showed that more than 70 % of girls aged 14-19 years had at some time been absent from school because they did not have access to sanitary pads. Hirsiguled came up with the conclusion that a kit with washable sanitary pads and soap can solve this problem, and at the same time as it reduces the amount of waste that the use of disposable sanitary pads creates.
