Media

Over 80% of people in Nepal listen to radio, out of which almost 40% - who fall in the poorest category - listen to it on daily basis. Therefore, improving the functioning of the media market in Nepal, particularly the radio targeted to rural populations, has the potential to contribute to pro-poor changes in agricultural practice and productivity.

Pigs

The Pig sector is large and associated overwhelmingly with poor and disadvantaged groups. More than 90% of the 540,000 households involved in rearing pigs have either one or two pigs as ‘fatteners’, in simple, low-cost, low-input, small-scale systems. Pigs are reared mostly in rural areas, with women being central to pig-raising activities.

Rearing pigs help rural households have a safety net in terms of savings, nutritious food security and provide a source of cash for household expenditure.
