Mariam's Group's story

Mariama, standing in the back row on the left in the picture, is a member of a group of 12 myAgro farmers.

She is 42 years old and the mother of four children aged between 10 and 20, three of whom attend school.

She became a farmer because of family tradition and has been farming since the age of 19. She grows groundnuts because of their nutritional value. She faces challenges like a lack of farming equipment and difficulties in finding high-quality fertiliser.

In her first year, Mariama has bought a packet of PDS groundnut seeds with okra for her 1/4 hectare field. With this purchase, Mariama hopes to grow enough so that she can buy farming equipment and cover her children's educational expenses.
