Bangladeshi Women rearing ducks as CCA

Importantly, they rear ducks near their homes, which is more acceptable in terms of social norms restricting the movement of women. The start-up costs were low, the activity did not create a heavy workload in terms of time or labor, and ducks produced eggs and meat for food and cash and can survive floods as they can swim.
