About The Project

$840 needed to purchase farming materials and seed add to rent land
$230 contributed by Jacinta towards her project

With the initial investment Jacinta rented land for potato cultivation, bought Irish seed potatoes, some fertilizer and a sheep. She will use the sheep manure as an organic fertilizer. She also used the money to improve her home sanitation system. With future investment and from a growing income Jacinta’s goal is to buy land for her potato farm. She plans to donate seed potatoes to her relatives to help them establish their own garden.



Paying it Forward

As her potato production increases, Jacinta will be able to hire local labor to help with cultivation.

Backstory

Jacinta and her husband have three children, two are in primary school and one is just a year old. They earn an income from selling potatoes, sorghum and maize they grow. They also work for others in the community. She echoes the same challenges of other families; they need to build water tanks to harvest rain and the roads need improvement. She believes that a more educated community and better cultivation methods are a key to improving life in their village. She has been part of a volunteer effort to builder some local feeder roads in the community.
