Mamakan's Group's story

Mamakan, who is found in the center of the photo holding the myAgro envelope, is a member of a group of 13 agricultural producers who live and work in the village. She is 38 years old and lives in a family of 65 people. She has 8 children, their ages are from 4 to 16 years, of which 5 among them are sent to school.

She became a farmer by tradition. She chose to enroll in myAgro for the payment system. For her second year with myAgro, Mamkan bought a packet of PDS peanuts with okra for her 1/4 hectare field. Through this purchase, Mamakan hopes to be able to increase her yields in order to develop her goat farming and insure food self-sufficiency.

In this group: Mamakan, Aminata, Aminata, Sata, Kourani, Ami, Assetou, Djeneba, Fanta, Kadia, Moyidian, Adama, Walamako
