Our Bank has approved projects such as the provision of seeds or young animals, sewing machines, carts, maybe with a donkey, cows, goats, or the provision of market stalls or street food stalls - micro-businesses that soon produce employment and uncomplicated cash returns.  We avoid sponsoring any hi-tech or high maintenance items.

Mushroom farming costs around 100 to set up and is incredibly easy and profitable with a major demand for the product. See this page.

People all over Africa are desperate for animal traction as a means of cultivation or food production. The oxen can plough 2 big acres of market gardens in a week hence 8 gardens in the months of rainfall. The cost of two oxen, a plough, veterinary fees and full equipment costs an initial  330 and produces many times that amount over and over again for the owners or the community group.

In India the Bank supplies a milk cow to an orphanage or to a children's home which is paid for monthly till the whole cost is covered.  The cow provides milk in the morning which is sold to provide income for the children's home, and is milked again in the afternoon to provide milk for the children and income to buy food and pay the insurance for the cow. A pregnant milk cow costs around 220.

Chickens are a very low-tech micro-business and are often cared for by children and the family in general, providing a non-stop supply of eggs and meat for meals and for sale. 200 will buy 50 chicks, feed, vaccinations and a good hen house.

Bee keeping and honey, tree planting and horticulture, home management, nutrition, HIV/AIDS training, fish farming, brick making, bakery, quails, disinfectant manufacture, tailoring courses, and skill training schools of many kinds have brought great delight to the owners, students and to the DCI Trust as well.
