Saving money to fund adaptation
In central Kenya, Bendetta Muoki has borrowed money from her savings group in order to buy seedlings for planting. Another loan has funded a water tank, so that she will not run out of water in the dry months. Innovations such as these are only possible for Bendetta because of the money she saves through the group. Farmers are often encouraged to adapt their farming systems to cope with climate change. Without capital, this is often impossible, but through savings and credit groups they can have more choices.
