Amount of grant approved (£) : 1,294

Year of grant : 2019

Jishughulishe is a group of young farmers led by Steven Nyambo. They rented a shamba on the bank of Lake Tanganyika four miles outside Kigoma.  We gave then a grant of £1294 so that they could buy a water pump, pipes and farming tools. The young men want to grow and sell vegetables so that they can support their families. We are keen to support income generation groups like Jishughulishe but we recognise the risks. So many factors can lead to a farm’s failure.
