First team of farmers named in Sierra Leone

April 14, 2014

The most rewarding part of a recent trip to Sierra Leone was identifying and offering an opportunity to three groups of locals. The team of Joseph Gbongay, Abu Bangura and Dauda Koroma are our first farming entrepreneurs! They have committed to farm an acre of pineapples with Just Hope. For the next two crop cycles, the pineapple they harvest will provide good income for their families and allow Just Hope to recover its initial sucker investment. By the end of the second crop cycle, this team and others like it will have planted their own farms independent of Just Hope – farms that will bear fruit for selling and suckers that will give them the option of planting, selling or sharing as their owners see fit.
