On 15th Dec 2016 in Bac Son, Mr. Chu Duc Manh, the director of Allianz Mission in Vietnam and Mrs. Hoang Thi Luan, the Vice Chairwoman of Bac Son People’s Committee signed an Agreement that Allianz Mission officially handed the ownership and management of the four cowherds from four villages to the District.
The District proved that during 7 years of implementation they were capable to manage the project and maintain the revolving loan cycles successfully. The beneficiaries really benefited from participating in the project and raising cows, which contributed significantly to the improvements of their household economic problems.
The number of new beneficiaries increased steadily with the female calves being handed over from the 1st beneficiaries to the next in all 4 project villages during the past 7 years. The cows developed well with the interest from the beneficiaries getting higher and higher. Having witnessed the results that the beneficiaries received from the project cows, more and more people in Bac Son wanted to participate in the project and have an opportunity to receive a female calf in order to start raising cows.
At the handover ceremony, the district and project commune leaders made their speeches acknowledging AM’s work and contributions to both the positive changes in people’s lives and the development of Bac Son in general. The leaders also gave warm appreciation to AM’s working team because of their sincere love for the local poor in Bac Son.
