The Organization of Planters for the Development of the Gwomòn River (OPDERGM) asked the Lambi Fund for financial support to strengthen a small women's credit project that already existed among the Organization. OPDERGM wanted to enable 25 more women to get financial means to conduct business activities.
Lambi Fund gave the Organization 250,000.00 gourds to lend 10,000 gourds to 25 women who would use the funds to strengthen the activities they already had. What was defined in the strategy of this project was different from others because the members would borrow the money for 3 months with a 3% degressive interest.
After each monthly repayment, the Organization would allow new members of the Organization to have the possibility to get a small loan as well.
In relation to the goal that the OFAP women gave themselves (which is to fight against the cost of living and allow them to collect a little money to meet the needs of their families, particularly to send their children to school), Lambi Fund gave them a small amount of money (165,000 gourd) left over from the Environment project.
Currently, the peppers in the Organization's garden are ready, and the women are already selling them in the local market. The women rely a lot on this project that allows them to have a certain economic autonomy/independence in their homes. Lambi Fund continues to seek funds so that the women can develop this program more.
The Pliche Women's Organization (OFAP) established in Pliche, 4th section of Makanry, Caravan commune has about 150 members who are spread out in several villages in the area. Lambi Fund financed for the Organization an environmental project (production of 120 thousand tree seedlings) that started from November 2021. The first production phase of this project has already been completed where the Organization produced and distributed 65000 seedlings to the members of the Organization and other people in the community. The second phase itself has already started from September 2022 and the Organization will have to produce approximately the same number of plants.
