Mercy was a fishermans wife in Niger, Nigeria who had nine children and was found by my partner Jack being lifted up the mountain side in labour in a wheelbarrow to hospital as there was no transport.

He gave her a lift and she arrived and in five minutes birthed a big baby boy which she proudly called Black Jack after him.

Within a year she had made her own money and was looking forward to breeding more.

When we visited ten days later and asked if she could like some mosquito nets she declined and asked instead would it be possible to have two goats.  The mosquito nets will rot but two goats make three goats was her reply. (#mercy #goats #makingmoney)
