“Doing the Leaky Bucket has helped us to understand inflows and outflows of money into our household, but especially to close areas where money was leaving our household.
At this moment, some of these ‘holes’ have been closed completely. There is no more leaking- only the essentials are taking money out- like school fees. From raising short season crops like beans, kales and local vegetables, and breeding poultry, we’re also able to raise money quickly that will last for a long time, without taking so much of our time. Through the trainings, we have been able to do more than we used to do, and we really appreciate it.”
