Farm Radio International’s archive of audio postcards keeps growing!
Farming is what Erena Micheal knows best. With the profits from her farm, she pays for her children’s school uniforms and books.
Recently, Mrs. Micheal listened to an agriculture program on Pride FM in Mtwata that helped her improve her farming (Pride FM is one of Farm Radio International’s 560-plus broadcasting partners). Through the radio, she learned about the importance of planting her crops in rows. And because of this, she harvested more rice than ever this year.
Mrs. Micheal works hard for her money. But that doesn’t stop her from enjoying herself! She dances under the hot summer sun dressed in her colourful kangas (traditional Tanzanian fabric used for clothing and for carrying babies), and celebrates the rice harvest with her fellow farmers.
