About The Project

$870 needed to purchase goats and seeds to grow is farming business
$240 contributed by Japeth towards his project


By planting a more varied crop Japeth will be providing a more balanced diet for his family and offer a more varied selection of produce to sell. He would like to build a structure to harvest rain water. He plans sell his sheep to other farmers in his village. (Farmers use the manure from livestock to improve the fertility of the soils). Your investment will help Japheth accomplish these goals. As his business incomes grows, he would like to buy a motor bike so that he can deliver his produce to customers. By growing his farming business he will need a labor force that will come from his local community.




Paying it Forward

Both the family businesses help support the local community by providing jobs.

Backstory

Japeth lives with his wife and 7 children. 5 children are school age which means the family must provide school fees. His wife helps support the family by selling bushera, a millet or sorghum based Ugandan beverage, to her local community. They would like to expand the business into a retail setting. Your investment will also grow this business. As the family income permits, they would like to improve their home with better bathroom facilities and assure safe drinking water.
