Fathuma's Group's story

Fathuma is a fifty-seven-year-old mother of seven children and a widow. She supports her family through small-scale farming, making and selling mandazi (doughnuts), and trading produce such as coconuts and mangoes. Fathuma does not have enough money to purchase good tools for her farming work and there is inadequate rainfall to produce good harvests. She is joining the KOMAZA microforestry program because she says, "KOMAZA trees will help my family and enable us to pay school fees." She also knows that planting trees will change the local environment for the better. In addition to using her tree farm profits to pay school fees, she wants to build a house which she can rent for income.
