About The Project

$780 needed to purchase more seed and manure for her farm
$215 contributed by Beatres towards her project


With your investment, Beatres wishes to expand her farm by planting more potatoes and invest in livestock. She wants to start with 1 sheep, grow the herd to 5, then add a cow. She will also purchase manure to improve the soil until she has the animals contribute manure as organic fertilizer. In addition to harvesting her crops, she wants to sell vegetable seedlings. She believes that her community will benefit from buying her seedlings at a lower cost then buying from an “outside” source.



Paying it Forward

Beatres will help her community by offering employment as her farming business grows. She will also be offering vegetable seedlings to her community at a lower cost than if buying from an "outside" source.

Backstory

Beatres lives with 2 other family members and her son, currently a student. She would like to improve her home and upgrade the sanitation system. She likes her community and has good relationships with her neighbors.  Given her families current income, there is always a shadow of financial insecurity. With your investment Beatres can grow and expand her farming business to accomplish her home improvement goals, keep her son in school and help her community with employment opportunities.
