    Resuming Livelihood out of micro-credit

    • by  ISARD Nepal
    • Dhana Maya Tamang of Patle, Dhuskun - 5 is a mother to 5 children, most of whom are already in college. Dhana Maya and her husband have always been involved in farming; doing plastic tunnel farming and livestock farming. Dhana Maya herself earns at least Rs. 20,000 from tomato sales alone every season. Before earthquake she was also actively rearing pigs and earning around Rs. 50,000 at least twice a year. The earning as enough to support her children's education. Unfortunately, the earthquake killed her livestock and destroyed her home. And while she wanted to resume her pig farm, she was short on money. Under ICCO/D&P's "Recovering Livelihoods and Empowering Communities", 10 savings groups received Rs. 100,000 as revolving fund. Patle Krishak Samuha of Patle, Dhuskun - 5 was one of them. Dhana Maya Tamang was among its many members who applied for a micro-credit and received it too. Tamang took out a loan of Rs. 20,000 and added Rs. 15,000 from her own savings to buy a female pig. In about three months time the pig gave birth to 9 piglets, which in a month's time can sell in the market for at least Rs. 5,000 each. Dhan Maya wants to wait for a few more months to sell them, until they are of the right weight. A pig can give birth up to three times a year, with the least number of piglets born being 4, which makes pig farming a profitable business. Since Dhana Maya is knowledgeable on the subject and has rich experience, she wants to continue with the venture. With the money she makes, she wants to invest it in expanding the pig farm, and save the rest to contribute to the reconstruction of her house. As for the micro-credit she took out, she will soon be able to pay it back along with the due interest. And so the money will be available for someone else to utilize.

    • by  ISARD Nepal
    • The farmers from Sallekepa, Dhuskun - 8 have begun work for the construction of Collection Center. The collection center supported by ACT Alliance with a funding of Rs. 500,000 will assure a safe storage of the farmers' harvest. The collection center will be used to keep fruits and vegetables, before they are sold in the market. The construction work is now under progress wherein the construction committee has decided to volunteer two days work. The farmers are very happy and thankful for the contribution. A collection center in the vicinity means the farmers have a safe place to store their harvest, and don't have to rush to the market to sell them. In days to come, the center will also play a key role in connecting them directly to the buyers. The building can also double up for quick farmers' meeting and workshops. Around 144 households will be benefited after the completion of the center.

    Update 2016

    • by  Roos Willard
    • The year 2016 has been a great, positive and impactful year for Justdiggit. A lot has happened on the program- and campaign side. We started a new Hydrologic Corridor Program in Morocco, delivered our projects in Kenya (the Kuku & Amboseli project) within time and budget, we launched our new campaign “Cooling down the planet”, for which we received close to 6 Million EUROs of media support, making it a multi-channel campaign reaching millions of people and managed to complete our team with the hiring of our new program director and a dedicated business developer for the private sector funding. We also formalized our partnership with Aqua for All to develop and design three Hydrologic Corridor Programs in Morocco, Tanzania and a third African country under this ‘JustDiggit at scale’. In 2016 we planned to start a Hydrologic Corridor program in both Morocco and Tanzania. Based on new insights we decided in 2016 to start programs at country level based on signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with partners with the capacity to scale a first project into a country Hydrologic Corridor program. This change of approach resulted in some delays for the expenses in planned projects including expenses on interventions in Morocco and the start of the program in Tanzania. But due to the signed MoU’s we do have full commitment in planning, content and funding at country level. In 2016 we signed MoU’s with Tanzania, Benin and Burkina Faso. In Morocco, we have worked together with the government to design the first project of the Hydrologic Corridor, on the awareness of the local communities in the project area and our project received an official COP22 logo. The outline design of the project is completed, community participation sessions started in September 2016 and we are now await formal approval by the last of the 6 involved government agencies (verbal approval has already been given) expected to be formalized in Q1 2017. We signed a MoU with the Vice President Office department of the Tanzanian government with the intension to start and implement a first project of the Hydrologic Corridor Program and to do-develop a full Hydrologic Corridor proposal. The full project design is planned in first half year 2017. The decision on the location of the third Hydrologic Corridor Program will follow after a first identification visit end of Q1 2017. The impact that we’ve made in Kenya has been captured in a short documentary created by Marc Haers and Safi Graauw. The documentary provides a unique insight in the progress and impact of our Kenya projects together with the Maasai communities. The highlights of the Justdiggit Campaign 2016 can be watched in the attached ‘Highlight’s Justdiggit 2016 campaign’.
