VSLA Groups Continue to Form

VSLA groups continue to form under Joe’s guidance, and many have issued their first loans. Joe and Sullay are using techniques different from those we are using in Ghana, and they are very effective! So effective, in fact, that we asked them to share what they have learned with Shanty in Lunsar, as he embarks on facilitating VSLAs there. Joe and Sullay are gaining significant traction from the community, and there are many groups who have asked for their help in forming a VSLA. They are starting to keep records on their phones using Google Docs, which presents fantastic real-time project tracking opportunities. They also are having great success training farmers on sustainable conservation agriculture methods and have purchased seeds and chicken manure to use in additional training sessions.
