Micro-livestock for Congo

 AP reports on the possibility of combating hunger in the DRC by using a smaller breed of livestock. They breed quickly, they can be hidden or carried around in the event of an attack, they have fewer diseases than most, and they taste like dark chicken! Researchers only thought of it because the people are already starting to do it themselves.

Move over, micro-finance. Micro-livestock is on the way!
