Les autres agriculteurs pratiquent la monoculture qui est moins durable, pourtant dans mon cas l'agroforesterie permet d'associer plusieurs cultures dans la même plantation

Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.

J'ai visité des exploitations agricoles au Cameroun et au vu des conditions de vie des agriculteurs, j'ai compris qu'ils n'avaient pas les bonnes techniques culturales, j'ai donc décidé de mettre sur pied ce projet avec une technique innovante et très respectueuse de l'environnement: l'agroforesterie.

Initiative louable.
Pourriez-vous mieux développer :
- ses aspects les plus prometteurs de création de valeur partagée ;
- son impact social quantifiable ;
- ainsi que sa viabilité financière à long terme.

Merci et bonne suite.

Merci pour l'intérêt porté à mon projet,
Le respect des droits des travailleurs par l'utilisation des DPI, leur affiliation à la Caisse nationale pour une meilleure sécurité sociale, des dispositions pour de bonnes conditions de travail, le respect de l’environnement par l'usage des produits bio, etc. sont autant d'éléments qui seront pris en compte dans l'implémentation de ce projet.
La création de 10 emplois permanents. En considérant que chaque employé correspond à une famille d'environ 5 personnes, ce sera en moyenne 50 personnes qui bénéficieront directement de ce projet.
La viabilité financière ne souffre heureusement d'aucun doute, les cultures pratiquées sont constamment en pénurie, nous tenterons donc de combler un déficit du marché local et locorégional.

Bien à vous
