REAP II Updates from Mekuri,Pemagatshel
The Vegetable Self Help Group with the approval from the Dzongkhag has been utilizing government lands that remain fallow to cultivate vegetables. This SHG has been supplying fresh vegetables to Mekuri Primary School & earning cash income. The group also started a saving scheme like all the other SHGs, whereby the members contribute an agreed amount monthly and a percentage from the sale of their products is also added to this saving. They will lend this amount to the members and non members at different interest rate. This will also be used to buy tools, equipment, seeds & machines, basically to sustain and expand the activities.
