About The Project

$900.00 needed to purchase sheep and seed potato to expand her farm
$285 invested by Hope towards her project

With an initial investment Hope bought a goat and contributed to her local SACCO (community savings program). The goat manure will be used as fertilizer to improve her crop yield. With future investments she plans to buy cultivate more land with quality seeds that will produce high yields. The increase income will  help her family in providing necessities and will be put back into her business.

 



Paying it Forward

Hope is caring member of her community. She will pay the investment forward by employing more people in her community to work on her farm, positively impacting their lives as well. Within the year she has helped various community members donating food and clothing.



 

Backstory

Hope lives her husband, Phillip, and six children. Three of their children attend school and the others contribute to the family income. One son provides local labor, another son works in a salon and a daughter works as a tailor. Phillip is in businessman currently involved in selling beer. As Hope’s farming income grows she has goals of building a new house while continuing to provide the tuition fees for her three children still in school. The family has struggled with diseases from malnutrition but a change in diet has help prevent these issues. Hope believes there are three main issues that need improvement for stability in the Kisoro district: more medical centers, more schools ( and the push for education) and a better road infrastructure. As a community she hopes her neighbors and friends will come together to discuss sustainable agriculture, the benefit of SACCO’s and encouraging education for all.
