90% of the population of Nepal live in rural areas and most depend largely on agriculture for their livelihoods.
These subsistence farmers farm on small plots of land, growing crops primarily to feed themselves and to sell any surplus in local markets. Approximately 60% live below the poverty line.
Helping these farmers to grow more is a key way to fight poverty and helping them to earn more from selling their produce is a key way to improve their lives. Even a small increase in farm yields will make a significant improvement in reducing poverty and enabling more parents to send their daughters to school.
That’s why The Trust will be helping farmers to increase agricultural productivity through training and support in improved techniques and practices – including the diversification or recovery of efficient traditional practices.
£ 20 a month will enable a farmer to buy fertiliser to increase the yield of his crops and to buy better quality Seed.
£100 will fund one day of a training course.
£500 will enable a farmer to build a 20,000 litre water tank to irrigate their land so improve crop yields
Your help is needed and your gift can make a real difference
Thanks to microloans from people like you, men and women who once lived on the edge of survival could now own successful small businesses—running grocery stores, sewing, creating handcrafts, and more.
They can make money to feed, clothe, and educate their children. And as loans are repaid, funds are used to provide loans for others. Your gift keeps on giving, and giving, and giving.
