Improving water-use efficiency in Burkina Faso and Benin
How will the goals be achieved?
”Before, my garden was left fallow for some months each year because of a lack of water or because the soil was exhausted. Now I learn how to prevent this and how to improve the cultivation of crops. I cultivate vegetables like carrots and onions, and my garden yields twice as much as before!”
Before, we could not get any credit, many women did not have their own land and there was always a shortage of inputs and water. Support in this matter helps us and gives us opportunities to increase our production and make a profit. With the money we can send our children to school and to the doctor when they get ill.
