Cameroon provides XAF600 mln in the Western region to boost livestock productivity

(Business in Cameroon) - In Cameroon, XAF622 million has been recently provided to poultry farmers, beekeepers, aquaculturists and other cattle and goat farmers in the Western Region in the framework of the livestock farming development project Prodel.  

The biggest beneficiaries of this financial support are poultry farmers, who are just recovering from the bird flu outbreak that struck a few months ago in the Western region (the country’s leading poultry producing basin that controls about 80% of this activity, according to official figures).

Let’s note that Prodel is a government project funded to the tune of XAF50 billion by the World Bank group. It is aimed at boosting productivity in the country’s livestock sector.
