Fono's story

Unlike other farmers who only specialize in growing only one specific root crop or vegetable, Fono believes in multi-cropping. She grows a range of them from root crops to vegetables and fruits like mangos, cucumbers and cocoa for example. Despite not having any children to help, her extended family provides labor to assist her in growing and selling her produce. Fono’s normal income is one hundred tala in a day depending on the sales. The money is used to expand her small businesss and for family commitments as this is the family’s main source of income. She is very thankful for the support from SPBD that has made all these things possible for her and her family.
