    Sharing a resource, doing more with less

    Day 88

    Any farmer can tell you about the two busiest parts of the year — planting and harvesting.

    The upcoming rainy season is on everybody’s mind in Annayo, as they get everything prepped and ready to plant.

    While the tools we provided are helpful, using them to prepare the land is highly labor intensive. Progress depends on how many people they have on hand to pitch in.

    What’s the next best thing to having all hands on deck? The right machinery to do the job for you.

    We set up a tractor-share system so that they can rent out the tractor to prep their fields for planting. Sharing the machine is an efficient way for resources to go farther – and get to more farms.

    “We have many things to support on our teams, about 50 sheep and goats and 10 camels as well as fruit trees and crops,” said Osman Adan Noor. “We will need to plant new crops like carrots, onions and tomatoes soon. Tractor hours would be so helpful in this process.”

    This change made possible by Mankind is My Business.
