Solution to business and agriculture : Cultivating ideas for growth (1/1)

If you want to contribute in ending hunger, make a positive impact in sustainable development goal 2. As a woman my voice is my power , I am coordinating a  female group of farmers that cultivates one of our staple foods in Africa which is Cassava. We started this journey with 15 females in a small portion of land. We empower our women by giving them loans after every harvest, we provide them with trainings on Agriculture and business. Our dream is now extending as we have got a large portion of land. Our pilot project is to start processing the cassava to Garri and cassava flour. To all the women out there, if you are passionate of doing anything in this world please try to start doing it every beginning has a continuity and the only way to continuity is to build something around what you are passionate of doing.

Dear Kadiatou,
"As a woman my voice is my power". How powerful to hear that message from you, and to have this news about your group of female farmers. Women have been farmers from the beginning of time, and these days it is a celebration to read that you have land, have been farming, and are growing both in numbers, and in land! How exciting. And with a loan system and plans for expansion. What good news. Thanks too, for us all to build with our passion.

Hello Kadiatu,
I read about your group of women farmers with intense interest. Combining entrepreneurship with a strong connection to the land will improve the lives of so many women and their families. Through your loan program and project to process the cassava into marketable products, more people will benefit. Wonderful success is on the horizon!

Your passion to encourage others is inspirational. Please continue to update all of us on World Pulse about how your program progresses.

Hello Kadiatu,
For a very long time, whenever I saw the flag of Sierra Leone I thought of the conflict and political unrest. I am so glad that the spirit of where real power lies is being brought to life through stories like the one you share here, of the innovativeness, resilience, and leadership of the women of Sierra Leone not as victims but as visionary leaders. I cannot tell you how beautiful that is when I come across African solutions to displace the generally perceived narrative of Africa!
Good on you and your venture. that is really impressive, and I am proud of your effort and foresight. Welcome to World Pulse, sister!

Hello, dear Kadiatu,

Welcome to World Pulse! I'm happy that a new voice from Sierra Leone is rising up!

This is such lovely news! You're right that investing in agriculture is sustainable. Kudos to you for organizing 15 women in this initiative. Please keep us posted, dear. I hope you connect with our sisters here and you can learn from their organization's journeys, too.
