The project aims to improve rural based livelihoods through milk. Preliminary findings indicate that resource poor small holder farmers have very low access to adequate feeding, breeding, animal health and credit services.  Only 4% of poor livestock keepers currently have access to credit and only 1.4% of marketed milk is processed. Findings also highlight that production of a marketable surplus remains a fundamental challenge and reinforces the need for organizational change, such as adapted hub approaches.
