Encouraging female farmers to diversify their diets and yield by growing soy alongside maize.
Right now, 74% of Malawi’s population goes hungry. That’s far too high. Many smallholder farmers struggle with unpredictable weather and unreliable yields. The MicroLoan Foundation had the bright idea to help female farmers branch out from traditional crops into growing soy using proven conservation farming methods that grow better quality crops in larger quantities. Together we’ve trained and provided hundreds of women with training and affordable loans to invest in their farming. Thanks to the project, test farms grew 280% more crops. That’s a lot of food – enough to make sure their families never go hungry and they have some extra money in their pocket.
