Savings groups transform the lives of smallholder farmers in Uganda
In a typical village like Kisuuma, the majority of people are smallholder farmers and are highly dependent on rain-fed agriculture, in an area prone to more frequent and longer dry spells and drought, erratic rainfall and lack of transportation and access to farming materials and credit. To combat these challenges, farmers using World Vision’s Household Engagement and Accountability approach formed a group that helps them to save money to buy materials such as hybrid seed and fertiliser and to feed their families and pay school fees for their children.
