Democratic Republic Congo Micro Devru

Training and distribution to farmer groups (men and women) of high-yielding disease-resistant varieties of cassava, dwarf palms, peanut, cow pea, and vegetable seeds help rural and urban families grow their own food. Marketing and sales training help them achieve dreams of better housing, education for their children and transport of produce to markets. Farmer groups work collectively in community fields and rotate collectively among the family plots of their members to profit from decreased labor burden on the families and discount prices for seeds, materials and transport of their produce to market.
