Crispus' Group's story

Crispus, a 52-year-old subsistence farmer and father of 12, is eager to join the KOMAZA microforestry program. He says, "I was pleased with the idea that through tree planting I can get some money in the future." Crispus has seen the success of tree farming from his neighbors who planted trees with KOMAZA in the previous years. With his proceeds from his eventual tree harvest, Crispus wants to build a permanent house and open businesses. He is proud that "at least I can say I am on the way out of poverty."
