Mpika farmers to get 150 dairy animals

AS THE Citizens’ Economic Empowerment Fund (CEEC) embarks on industrial transformation strategy, over 60 livestock farmers in Mpika are expected to receive 150 dairy animals to boost the sector.
CEEC has embarked on a programme to identify industrial clusters and value chains to create industries that will facilitate job creation for economic growth for micro, small and medium enterprises.
“Mpika has been earmarked to receive funds from CEEC for a dairy production project. Sixty-one livestock farmers in the district will benefit from a loan fund amounting to K2 million [to buy a] total of 149 dairy animals from the money,” the Zambia National Farmers’ Union (ZNFU) notes in its Friday Brief.
