About The Project

$840 needed to rent land and purchase livestock and seeds
$370 contributed by Kellen towards his project


With your investment, Kellen will expand his farm by putting more Irish potatoes into production. He also wants to grow other vegetables to sell and to contribute to the health of his family. He would like to buy 3 goats, 3 sheep and 2 cows. These animals will provide organic manure for his crops. The cow will provide fresh milk. With his farm expansion Kellen will need more labor and plans to continue to employ members of his local community. He will offer initial employment for someone to manage his goats.



Paying it Forward

Kellen and his family provide clothing for the needy in Kisoro. Kellen will help his community by offering employment as his farming business grows.

Backstory

Kellen has 6 members in his family. His wife is a tailor and they have 4 small children and a teenager. In addition to income earned from farming and tailoring, they invest in a local savings association. Their house is small and old, and as the family income increases, they would like to build a bigger house. They would like to get the foundation started this year. Nutrition is important to his growing family. The cows will provide fresh milk and his vegetable garden will provide a more balanced diet.
