Jeyanthiran – Dairy Program, Batticaloa

My name is Vinasithamby Jeyanthiran and I live in Kurumanveli, Batticaloa. I have been involved in dairy business for the past 6 years. However, I was not able to earn sufficient income due to lack of knowledge. Ygro included me in their program and provided trainings on how to care for a crossbreed cow. They also supported me in procuring a crossbreed cow. Now I am able to get between 10-12 liters of milk per day and earn a decent income. I am thankful to Ygro for helping me.

Edmond – HEED, Mannar

My name is Edmon and I’m 35 years old. I live in Thevanpitty, Mannar and have been fishing from a very young age. After I returned from being displaced due to the war Ygro provided me a loan to obtain the needed equipment. This helped me to increase my income. I was also able to extend the house that was granted by the government.
