Pola's Group's story

Pola is a forty-six year old mother of six. She is a small scale farmer who also makes charcoal for sale in the markets. Her husband is a day-laborer. She faces many challenges in her work, but primarily she is concerned that her crop yield is not enough to feed her family and the trees she uses to make charcoal are scarce.

She is excited to work with KOMAZA because she likes the community aspect of the work, and is impressed with the KOMAZA field staff's way of approaching her community and trusts them to educate them on tree farming. She hopes to use the extra income to pay school fees for her children.
