Diverse work

Our work is diverse. Many days we go downtown to our office and provide consulting to our partners, or work on the overall adminstration of our programs.

Other days we get to go out to the field to see what is happening with the people we are here to serve.

This week we enjoyed seeing a loan repayment meeting for our urban savings and microcredit program.

In addition we traveled to another village to see several experimental fields where improved agricultural methods and millet varieties are being tested to combat the terrible parasitic weed called "striga."

The village also has bore-hole and water pump that provides clean water to many surrounding villages. Thankfully, this time we didn't get stuck in the mud--and we were able to enjoy a traditional meal with the villagers and admire the great termite mounds.
