Team Microfund Design Statement
Microfund is a community-based ecosystem that enables food sharing, exchange & trade among rural and urban-poor families engaged in smallholder agriculture in order to reduce food wastage as well as ensure families receive the full complement of nutirents needed for proper growth, thus ensuring food, nutrition & income security
Interesting Fact about Rural-facing Microlending for Food Processing
Studies show that:
1. More and more people are engaging in their local food system by becoming food producers themselves (e.g., by gardening or raising animals such as chickens), or by choosing to purchase more local foods.
2. In addition to growing food locally, processing these foods into value-added products and then promoting these products are important steps towards a stronger food system.
3. :( Unfortunately, in many developing countries, despite adequate food production in most communities, malnutrition and undernutrition rates among children are usually above 60%! Malnutrition, although an independent :) condition on its own, is a precursor to a host of diseases that are some times fatal.
Team Workspace - Our share of the wall.
Why do these stickys keep falling off our wall? Can you recommend a brand that can stick to the wall?
This is the tiny-weeny co-working space that we share with 4 other Ugandan teams. We are finding that running ideas not only amongst ourselves, but also with teams working on totally different ball games is very helpful. #TFFCrossIdeation
Here, we were attending a DL coaching event.
