The Jempe Community Association in Huaracayo used money from the community pot to form a rice committee and bought a new rice threshing machine. This machine extracts the grain from the seed cases known as chaff, so it is ready to be cooked, or sold at the local market.
So far, the Huaracayo community has planted 64 acres of rice with 25 acres a left to be planted. They have already sold 2.8 tonnes of rice for S/6,160 (approx. £1400).
And the good news, all profits go back the 43 rice growers from Huaracayo and Katish.
