Follow-up of the project

Date:                May 27th 2019
Name project: Purchase of land for agriculture

General status:

On March 7th land for CRVO was purchased with the aim of improving on agriculture growing which is the backbone of economy.

Progress since last status report:

After the purchase of the land, we started the process of putting in the organic manure to make it more fertile to get good yields. Thereafter we gave it little time to rest, as the seeds get ready for planting. Currently, till mid of June we are tilling the land to be ready for planting in the first half of July. We are grateful that because of the first planting, three of our children CRVO, who were actively involved in agriculture, got inspired by the project and has now started to study further agriculture. They’ll be trained in agriculture majoring in crop husbandry

Financial status:

All the funds for purchasing of land were spend.


- high transport costs
- lack of storage
- expensive labour
- climate changes affecting the planting season
