Both of our stories this week highlight successful women farmers. In Cameroon, Thérèse Bilama was suffering from pests in her cowpea and okra. Then she discovered how to make insecticides from pepper and soap. Find out below what benefits she and other farmers saw once they began to use natural insecticides.
Beryl Omondi is a successful young farmer in Kenya’s Nyanza province. She gave up her job to pursue farming full-time. The key to her success is that she regards farming as a business. The proceeds from her farm are even funding her university tuition so she can study commerce. She dreams of being a successful large-scale farmer.
In the resource section this week, you will find another module in the series from Search for Common Ground on “Sustainability for Community Radios.”
