Yaks & Sheep

Raising a family in Mongolia can be tough. Brutal winters mean months of limited food and money. You can change that by helping a family start a cheese production business, giving them year-round food and income.

Finding New Markets for Milk

Milk is a key source of income for Ouyngerel and her family. She and her husband and daughter work hard to milk their animals. However, especially in the summer, the local market is flooded with others selling milk too so they are not able to make a sustainable income. Transporting milk is difficult. They needed a way to make their farm sustainable all year round.

Then at a women herders’ meeting, Ouyngerel learned about a cooperative effort spearheaded by ADRA that would allow her to join with others to sell milk for cheese production. She actively recruited family members and friends to collectively provide milk to a production factory. Her goal is to help each family, including her own, increase their yearly income by working together.

With your support, other families like Ouyngerel’s can create a sustainable business.
