Mary's Group's story

Mary is a 30-year-old farmer and mother of three; her husband is a teacher. Mary keeps animals and plants crops, but her agriculture and livestock businesses face the challenges of drought. The animals do not have water to drink, and the crops do not have enough rain to grow.

Mary is encouraged by the tree growth she has seen on the land of farmers who planted with KOMAZA in past years. Mary wants to join the KOMAZA micro-forestry program so that "tree-farming skills and income will be shared in the family." She intends to use her profits from the tree farm to educate her children and improve her farming endeavors.

In this group: Mary, Zawadi, Nyadzua, Lozi, Sidi, Hariri, Chenda, Charo, Karisa, Saidi, Kadzo
