A New Cornmill

Some years ago we bought a cornmill for the village of Adutwam on condition they eventually paid us back with interest. The idea was a sort of collective microcredit. The women of Adutwam already had microcredit loans from us so the village was familiar with the concept.

Adutwam have never once defaulted on their payments, and also started saving surplus profits in the bank. Recently they decided to use their savings to buy a second cornmill – and here it is in the photo. This only goes to show what an intelligent and well-managed village Adutwam is.
