For $3,000, we can help a family double their income for 30 years.

On June 6, 2014, Emerging Enterprise, with host Van Baird, welcomed into the Business RadioX studio Sarah Buchanan, Co-Founder of the Kula Project, to share her story of creating sustainable communities in Africa.

The Kula Project is a non-profit organization that invests in small-scale farmers in Rwanda to help them create sustainable communities. The majority of farmers in developing nations like Rwanda are unable to generate enough income to feed and sustain their families, due to the lack of basic needs. After a trip to Kenya in 2009, Buchanan saw the “undeniable effects of agriculture on underdeveloped countries” and had the desire to help change their circumstances.

“There are a billion small farmers in the world, let's work with the people who are already trying to do something,” explained Buchanan.

The Kula Project makes personal investments in people and farming for families and the community. “For $3,000, we can help a family double their income for 30 years,” said Buchanan. The Kula Project spends the donated money by investing in the farmers, planting the crops and selling the harvests.
