Peter's Group's story

Peter is a 41-year-old farmer on the coast of Kenya. He is married with six children. As with many farmers, Peter's agricultural business faces the challenges of rainfall scarcity, pests and diseases, and marketing difficulties. He joined the KOMAZA program because "it's a long term project for future benefits." All six of Peter's children are currently in school, and he plans to continue to educate them with the proceeds from his new tree farm. Peter's favorite part about working with KOMAZA is that the program is "bringing people together." He looks forward to improving his agricultural projects with the knowledge and money he will gain from being a KOMAZA farmer.
