Blan's Group's story

Blan, wearing a white hat and raising his hand, is a member of a group of five farmers who live and work in the village of Keleya in Mali. Blan, 63 years old, lives in a family of 20 persons of whom eight are children. All eight are or have been in school. Blan is a farmer out of love of farming, but he has to face difficulties such as lacking field hands.

Blan registered with myAgro for its agricultural techniques. For his second year, Blan has purchased a package of fertilizer and hybrid seeds for his field of two hectares. Through this purchase, Blan hopes to increase his yields so that he can raise cattle, build a house, and ensure school fees.
