Nyanje's Group's story

Nyanje is a forty-two-year-old father of fourteen. Nyanje's primary income-generating activity is tapping coconut trees for the natural wine they produce; he also engages in other agricultural activities for bringing income to his family. Coconut wine is widely produced, therefore making the supply high and the prices low.

Nyanje's other agricultural activities are challenged by drought, causing poor harvest yields. He is joining the KOMAZA tree planting program because he believes "the project really targets to improve the lives of the people." With the proceeds he will get from harvesting his trees, Nyanje wants to provide education through university level for his children, as well as build a good home for his family and start other businesses. Nyanje says that because the KOMAZA tree planting program is so good, he "would love to see everyone in Mwanamwinga registered for it."

In this group: Nyanje, Raymond, Siasa, Jumwa, Jumwa, Bibi, Kahaso, Nyevu, Nyevu, Kenga, Isaac, Hamisi, Sidi, Charo
