community meeting 
Abraham met twenty eight Kivule community members and the purpose was to introduce goats program to the community. They were so excited to hear it and one member asked if they are going to get a goat. Abraham answered him that Kibo wants each of them to be doing something in their homes because the idea of doing something together is good but they will it more when they will bring back the offsprings. It is good that they contributed money as a group and bought a pit which now is having six piglets but still that why they have been struggling to discuss how they will keep the piglets to make sure they share the labor. They decided that each member will get a piglet to take care of and Muslims in the group will get goats as they will sell a piglet to buy for them goats. They want to do that because they share the labor looking after them not to burden one member to look after them. This group is unique because even Muslims said that if keeping pigs will make a group move from one step to another it is okay and for them they will be keeping goats. The next meeting they will be discussing about things which may arise like women who are in the group but their husbands are not members because in the end the husbands may claim that goats belong to them or sell them.
