The founder of Mian environment organization declared that the cashew sector will create 50,000 jobs in Chad by 2021 thanks to the 3,000,000 plants that will be planted and then maintained. According to Mian-Hingam Sauria, cashew is used in the manufacture of aircraft tires, brake fluids, organic pesticides, cosmetics and in the food industry. This why, he considers the cashew sectors as green oil in order to become the lever of the Chadian economy by promoting the products of the cashew trees for local consumption and export. This idea urge me to make a difference by reacting on Environnmental impact action and general farming.
