Members of MPL have partnered with the Lambi Fund to create a community credit fund and to launch an ox-plow service. Funding for the purchase of four oxen, two plows and farming tools, such as hoes, carts, picks and pumps have been provided by Lambi Fund. The goal of this project is to increase land productivity and improve food security through the use of ox-plows and low-interest loans for local farmers. Lambi Fund is providing veterinary care for the oxen for one year, until the organization has adequate funds from ox-plow service profits to cover the cost on their own. Training in project management, ox plow operation and animal care, microcredit fund management, organizational capacity building, and tree nursery construction and management has taken place as well. The resources needed to plant 20,000 seedlings in the area are being provided as well.
