Donate for new building for Jitpurphedi Women Agricultural Cooperative
Could you conduct your business meetings outside in the street?
Could you bank at a window open to the public?
Could you train your company members sat outside on a dusty path in the hot sun?
Could you share your office with sacks of fertilizer?
Well – could you?
The members of the Jipurphedi Women’s Agricultural Community do it every working day and they need a new building to work, learn and sell their surplus produce.
The Cooperative started 6 years ago with 32 members, it now numbers over 800. It offers women the opportunity to save, to borrow money and to buy seeds and fertilizer at reduced rates. It has made a massive impact on the lives of the women 96% feeling happier and 76% feeling more respected in their families.
They have outgrown their current dirty and dusty rented premises, they have bought the land and now need some £74,000 for construction, fixtures and fittings and IT infrastructure and hardware.
