We will provide farming tools such as plow, machete, water containers and farming inputs such as seeds, fertilizer and insecticides to 550 very poor farmers in order to increase their income from the farm and thus improve their social and economic status. They will then be able to live with dignity, fully participating in the life of the community.
Very poor farmers do not have farm tools and inputs in order to improve their farm productivity. Cultivating their farm becomes very laborious and plants do not grow well if the soil is not well-cultivated. In this case, farm production is very low and farmers become mired in poverty and indebtedness.
The project will provide life-saving farming tools and inputs to very poor farmers who otherwise could not avail of these much-needed support to them. With the tools and inputs, farmers will be able to expand their farming area, grow a lot more crops, raise farm animals such as pigs and improve their overall situation.
Improvement in the overall social and economic status of very poor farmers will mean strong and vibrant families and communities. Suffering because of lack of access to simple life-saving tools is abated.
