Yazda trained 32 beneficiaries to initiate their agriculture-based small businesses in Sinjar

As part of the Livelihood and Agricultural project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the support of its partner Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund (ASB), Yazda provided training on topics such as agriculture and animal husbandry to the 32 beneficiaries in Sinjar; these beneficiaries will own small agribusinesses after completion of the training. 

Veterinarians and specialists from the Veterinary Department in Sinuni participated and provided the beneficiaries with the knowledge and skills needed to raise and protect their livestock from diseases, thus helping enhance the region’s socioeconomic status. 

As a continuation of this project, Yazda has opened 32 non-agriculture businesses and 10 agriculture small businesses so far; furthermore, the Yazda team is in the process of setting up 22 other small businesses projects.
