IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is providing training that can help small-scale poultry entrepreneurs and farmers in Nepal increase their revenues and gain better access to markets.
In partnership with two Nepalese poultry firms, Probiotech Industries and Avinash Hatchery, IFC conducted a Training of Trainers workshop for 20 local veterinarians in Kathmandu.
The three-day workshop included sessions on how to strengthen management capacity by improving financial literacy, business acumen, and developing technical skills that improve productivity. It also included technical sessions on poultry housing and brooding management, vaccination, bio-security, and broiler diseases.
A half-day field visit to Banepa in the Kavre district to work on brooding management was also part of the course. Training for farmers will commence from October 2011.
