Launching a crop-selling venture in Mumeya

Specioza, Poline, and Ezra, like most people in the area, are subsistence farmers who produce large quantities of sorghum, maize, and beans. Starting with the December harvest, these cooperative leaders plan to purchase crops at market price from farmers at harvest time and resell them for an additional 15% profit during off-season. This venture will benefit 5,000 farm families by providing a stable market for their crops and move the lowest income families away from dependence on government assistance. The cooperative is asking for $5,000 to cover their start-up costs and purchase their first round of crops.
