  • Organisation

    The Hoomsen Women Farmers Co-operative Society is a co-operative society registered by two groups of women farmers. They both started as an association of twenty women farmers, located in a small farming village called Namess in Shepwan community of Shendam Local Government Area in Plateau State. The group saw the need to come together and support each other at individual and group level through communal farming activities, at times for a fee or as support to members as is culturally practiced.

    The Co-operative is currently made up of a total number of forty fully registered members. As a registered co-operative group they cultivate jointly, harvest, store and later sell the harvest in the market and some of the proceeds is plowed into the co-operative’s account to serve as a loan to members during the lean farming season that is characterised with lack of food in some households.

    • Project

      The project Our Land, Our Right is strengthening the capacity of women through the cooperative, to gain access to farmland, which they ordinarily could not achieve at an individual level since women are culturally prohibited from owning land.

      The project focuses on :
      a. Strengthening the co-operative and positioning it better to access funds and agricultural credit facilities
      b. Strengthening the advocacy and influencing capacity of members to be able to engage traditional strongholds that will pave way for them to access land
      c. Supporting the co-operative to secure farmland for the use of members of the co-operative
