Our farm project is well underway. To understand the details of it please visit http://www.mountainfund.org/projects/?name=Women-s-Farming-Cooperative&pid=101 And read more about this unique approach to giving a hand up, not a handout, to women and children in need. I am asking for your donation to this, but your donation isn't just going to be spent. We are seeking funds to establish a small loan program for women at the farm. We are providing the land, housing and seed for the first year crops. If the women want to buy a cow, goats or chicken to be able to have a cash crop, they will have to borrow money from us and pay it back as they sell their livestock or eggs, milk etc. This project is a test of sustainable practices and as such, not a total give away program. Our goal is to establish a fund of $5000US to be used as a revolving loan fund. If each subscriber to this cause pitched in $10.00 we'd have it. What do you say? Help us give a hand up. Not a handout.
