Vettvangsferð til Tonkolili & Makeni

24.09.20

Síðustu helgi fór Suzanne, sem leiðir Pre-accelerator prógrammið okkar, til Tonkolili héraðsins að heimsækja tvo frumkvöðla úr prógramminu okkar. Á laugardeginum heimsótti hún Mohamed sem ræktar hrísgrjón í þorpinu Magbas og á sunnudeginum fór hún til Alie sem rekur paprikurækt í Mangay Loko sem er þorp í Bombali héraði.

Það var gott að geta loks séð búskap þeirra beggja og vinnuna sem þeir hafa lagt í ræktun á landinu síðustu mánuðina. Við vonumst til að geta sýnt ykkur síðar frá fyrstu uppskerunni og afurðirnar þeirra!
