Keep track of this project as it gets up and running
Our first update on this project will be coming soon.
We’re local women, who love to farm. We don’t do it as a hobby, we do it as a business. It feeds our children, sends them to school and pays our medical bills. In the past we struggled to make money off our land, but Project Possible’s training has helped us so much. Though droughts and floods are a constant challenge we are united women. We work in four farming groups helping each other to plant, weed and harvest our crops. We’re in it together!
We know how to make the money in our pocket go further. We are canny buyers ourselves! We know the best prices in the markets! By talking and sharing we stretch our money that bit more!
We want to set up four trading enterprises in Soroti. We will buy and sell seeds and produce alongside selling our own crops at the markets. We want to rent space to store our produce safely, we’ll buy when prices are low and sell when the market goes up! With these poverty-fighting ventures we can trade fairly in our community and earn money to feed, clothe and send our children to school!
“I work hard and make money from farming. It’s a serious business. As a group we can make a profit from this business. We'll use the profits to buy seed for vulnerable people in our community and we'll inspire other local women to farm.” Atimong Mary
Project Possible is working with local partner Youth Action Uganda to help women in four farming groups to open enterprises to sell their own crops and trade in other produce.
