The additional income generated by the sale of agro-ecological vegetables helps me to diversify my family’s diet and contributes to the expenses related to the schooling of our children.

I can’t remember the last time I bought vegetables to cook at home. Indeed, since I started growing and harvesting on my plot, I have been supplying vegetables to my household on a regular basis. This has considerably reduced my food expenses and given me more autonomy at home.
