About The Project

$480 needed to purchase materials grow their business
$180 contributed by Scovia towards her project

Your investment will help Scovia buy more Irish seed potatoes to increase her production. She would also like to buy salt blocks for her sheep. Investments will also help her be able to hire the local labor needed as her crop production increases. With her increased income she would like to build her own house and add a water tank to harvest clean drinking water.



Paying it Forward

Scovia donates money to families to help pay school costs. As her farm business grows, she will be able to provide farming jobs for her community.

Backstory

Scovia and her husband Steven sell Irish potatoes, beans, wheat, onions and sheep , goats. Steven will earn additional income by providing labor to others in the community. They have two children in school and one that is too young. School is good source to build friendships, but Scovia worries that teachers are in short supply. Scovia’s family lives with another family. She has a goal to have her own house. Farming is good in the fertile soils of the area, but they far from healthcare or a hospital and the roads are poor.
