The peasant association of Baille Tourible presents encouraging results

December 20, 2017

Since 2016, KANPE and its partner Mouvement Paysan Papaye (MPP) have supported the community and “Organisation de Baille Touribe” (ODB), the local farmers’ association, in an effort to revitalize agriculture.

Since the first bean seeds were distributed to 250 farmers in April 2016, ODB has made progress and agriculture is gaining ground in Baille Tourible

  • The local farmers’ organization recorded a surplus of 11,137 pounds of black beans.
  • Savings amount to more than $1,400 US, resulting from the sale of beans harvested over the last 18 months.
  • After hurricane Matthew in October 2016, all of the organization’s members donated beans to help those suffering in the South.
