Savings and Sorghum in Malawi

Nellie Chisale & Lingstone Ganamba, ASAP Africa Malawi field officers are ready to go out to the communities for a series of progress review meetings.

Getting there can be half the battle now, during the height of the rainy season.

Pictured here, Lingstone and Nellie monitor fertilizer application and scout the garden for a possible attack of pests and disease. This is part of ASAP's sorghum seed multiplication project at Jailosi in Ndakwera area. There are fourteen community members that are participating in the sorghum seed multiplication project in Ndakwera area alone. Each community member has a 0.2 of a hectare. All the fourteen are members to different Village Savings & Lending savings club groups which will be trained by ASAP in managing internal savings and lending and small business skills training.
