Kenga's Group's story

Kenga is a fifty-six-year-old father of nine children. He earns money for his family through small scale farming and tapping coconut wine. Kenga's agricultural endeavors suffer from the inadequate rainfall of the dryland region he calls home. He is joining the KOMAZA microforestry program because he sees the organization as "intending to help farmers grow and develop well financially." Kenga is looking forward to using the profits from his tree farm to meet his family's basic needs, such as clothing and housing. He intends to use the money from his tree farm to educate his children, who will still be in school for at least a decade to come.
