Working together with Cleopa Ayo (director of GFP Organics) to export the crops of small holders in Usambara mountains. With a lot of perseverance of Cleopa Ayo and his staff we are all happy and proud that the farmers have a much better income now and that young farmers step into farming again.
Dear Erwin, I like your project to link farmers to specific markets. How do you take care of quality control? We have a comparable project, but only for spices, in the North of Tanzania. The difference is that we process spices in a central processing plant in the village and sell from there. We have a strict system for quality control, as to make sure to satisfy the requirements of the buyers. You can see: https://network.changemakers.com/challenge/creatingsharedvalue/entry/village-based-processing-of-organic-spices/ Wishing you good luck. Marg
Dear Fohla, My French is not good enough to use for writing. But I understand the text, I think this is a very good initiative to make water hyacinth to use. This idea can be expanded to other places where water hyacinth is also a problem. Wish you good luck.
