Trainings in Microdose and Organic Farming Improve Income and Quality of Living

Delma Jean.previewMy name is Delma Jean. I am a farmer and a member of Bissiga Epicenter in Burkina Faso. The epicenter provides Vision, Commitment and Action Workshops (VCAWs) that are organized to strengthen our organizational capabilities, and also provides sector-specific trainings. I also received training on microdose technology and the production of organic manure.

In the past, I could not produce more than ten bags of maize per hectare of land. That kept me in poverty for many years.

Through the acquisition and application of new knowledge, I could increase my production. Now, I get 35 bags of maize per hectare of land. The Hunger Project-Burkina Faso has thus contributed to my success and that of other epicenter farmers who apply the new technology of microdosing.

Today, I have grain attics to store my harvest and my family is well nourished. Through selling the surplus of my crop yield, I can support the expenses of my family and improve my living conditions.

I now live in a solid house and I manage to send my two children to secondary school, which is quite a feat for an owner of a small farm like mine.
