Achievements of the Women Farmers

Thanks to MADRE’s support, the women farmers in the Al Qadarif region had a successful harvest, allowing them to pay back their entire bank loan of US$5,000. Local banks praised the women for this achievement. Because of these positive results, Zenab is now introducing women to a credit union, a benefit that they have never had before.

Another exciting result of last year’s successful harvest was that women farmers in the community of Walddaeef have begun the process of bringing electricity to their village. Fatima is optimistic that the motivation of these women to use their new income in productive ways, will lead to “a better life” for the whole community.

Finally, Zenab purchased an events tent and chairs with the income raised from recent harvests. They rent out these supplies to communities as another source of income for the women of Walddaeef.
