SAT Saving and Lending (SSLG) Bring a Better Life to farmers!
In the case of farmers’ livelihoods, SAT Saving and Lending Groups (SSLG) can play a significant role. Farmers remain bound even during the off-season despite not engaging in their usually farming activities also farmers have options to invest in other sectors of the economy. Find out more about how SAT SSLG has assisted farmers in many ways.
Implementation of Internal Control System
Organic farmers produce safe and nutritious food for all of us, but organic farming also has the potential to improve the livelihoods of our farmers. Individual organic certification can be time-consuming, expensive, and administratively demanding for most of our small-scale farmers who live in rural areas along the slopes of Uluguru Mountains.
So, the ideal way to certify our farmers is through group organic certification, in which these groups of farmers implement an Internal Control System (ICS). Learn more about how farmers implement this system and get their general opinion on it.
Increasing Spice Production through establishing new nurseries
The Nemele women group received cloves and cinnamon seedlings in 2020 just after joining SAT under the USP II project, and currently they have 1438 cloves seedlings and 200 cinnamon seedlings in their nurseries. They expect to distribute equally to each member of the group and each member will plant on his/her farm as per the technical training they received about organic agriculture. Learn more how the group managed to reach at this stage and their goals in spice production.
