Jumwa's Group's story

Jumwa is a 37-year-old dry land farmer and a mother of nine children. She grows maize and cassava, but her maize crop is often infested with a stalk borer as she does not have enough money to buy insecticide. Jumwa is joining the KOMAZA micro-forestry program because "KOMAZA is helping people to make investments in trees." She says her village is doing the project and she does not want to be left out. Jumwa plans to use the profits from her tree farm to educate her children, six of whom are currently in school. She aspires to be "a woman who can open a business and build a good home."
