Etiness's Group's story

Etiness is a 72 years woman, widowed with 5 children. Only one child is in form 4. Her husband passed away in 2017 but this could not stop her from farming since rice farming has been a source of food and income for her family. She has been in Rice production for 22 years now. She is a group leader in her group because of her leadership skills and experience in rice farming. She is standing to the right with her hand raised. The new loan from FIFAD will help her to construct shallow well and buy solar powered pump to continue farming through irrigation which will enable her to harvest more than twice a year and this will increase her income too. The profits from the business will help her to educate her child who is in form 4 and support her family with food at all times. In addition to that the profits will also help her to be a self reliance farmer. In this group: Ian, Tione, Phaless,Adijah, Friday, Black, Maria, Robert, Etiness, Loveness, Roy, Elizabeth
