Dama's Group's story

Dama is fifty-one year old farmer and mother of seven. She grows maize, cowpeas and green peas. The greatest challenge to her agricultural business is pests. Dama's husband is a quarry attendant, and they are currently sending three of their children to school.

Dama joined KOMAZA's microforestry program because she saw that her neighbor's tree farm is doing well and she is "convinced if I take care of the trees they will give me good money." With her profits from the tree farm, she plans to make some investments in a business and build a good home for her family. Dama believes in the microforestry program she is joining, saying, "KOMAZA is doing development in our village by planting trees."

In this group: Dama, Tabu, Zawadi, Halima, Mbuche
