Roadtrip to Tonkolili & Makeni

24.09.20

Last weekend, Suzanne took a roadtrip to the Tonkolili district to visit two entrepreneurs from our Pre-Accelerator Programme! On Saturday, she visited Mohamed, who produces rice in the village Magbas, and on Sunday she visited Alie who has a pepper farm in Mangay Loko.

It was great to finally see the both of the guys’ farms, and to see the work they have done over the past months on their land. We hope that, in a few months, we are able to show you their first harvest and production!
