FOMCAM seeks to implement a sustainable poverty reduction programme in Kimbi village through the creation of a women's consumers and financial credit society and also a sustainable orphan/ vulnerable children care programme in the community. These two programmes have been analysed to be able to transform the village of Kimbi after 20 years. (see the programme proposals attached)
The core problem this funding proposal is seeking to address includes poverty prevalence in the Kimbi village, in which the women and orphans are the most affected. The major root cause to this problem is the low income being earned by the population of this community from their main source of income which is subsistence agriculture. The lack of adequate basic amenities like roads, electricity, water, and telecommunication infrastructures in the area aggravate the situation.
-Provide regular and adequate access to financial credit to at least 4,000 women in the community; -Provide accessible and cost effective household accessories, farm inputs, and equipment to at least 7,000 members of the community; -Empower and equip 27 existing self-help socio-economic women groups on group management, consumers' cooperative and financial credit schemes and as well strengthen them by setting up an umbrella structure - the cooperative society.
-Agricultural productivity is increased by 40% - Misallocation of time and energy is reduced by 70% - Know-how on improved agricultural systems is increased by 50% - Standards of living accommodation is increased by 60% - Ability to provide adequate health care in families is increase by 20% - Enrollment in schools are increased by 70% - School dropouts rates are reduced by 80% -Crime wave in the community shall be reduced by about 75% after 10 years.
