Lillian's Group's story

Lillian is a thirty-five-year-old mother of nine children and is a dryland farmer. Her husband is a farmer, too, and they grow maize, cowpeas, coconuts and cassava. Their agricultural endeavors are hindered by pests, but they lack the money to buy pesticides. Lillian is joining the KOMAZA microforestry program because, as she says, "I heard of the benefits I will get if I plant trees from KOMAZA." With the profits from her tree farm, Lillian plans to educate her children and to purchase a dairy cow for milk sales in her village. Lillian enthusiastically shares, "The trees KOMAZA is giving farmers grow fast, and I love it."
