Micro Loan and Farmers Cooperative Program
Overview: Go! Malawi is committed to assisting the people in M’Pamila Village and the surrounding communities by offering assistance in sustainability. By providing funds through micro-loans, farmers will help keep each other accountable for their work.
Partnership with Malawian Domestic Companies: Go! Malawi provided the initial start up costs for a Coffee Growing Project and provided loans to local cooperatives. Go! Malawi staff acted as a liason and brought Mzuzu Coffee (A Malawian run international coffee company) to set up a local office! The company provides training in business skills, and additional support with the coffee for the local coffee farmers.
Farmer Support: Go! Malawi staff also assists individual farmers with training and provides rewards for farmers that follow the proper growing schedule with the crops.
