Abu Bangura

Bauya, Sierra Leone

Abu Bangura is a former Just Hope employee who worked on the pineapple farm crew. Due to a steady income, Abu once commented, “Now I am able to buy more seeds to extend my farming activities and take care of my family.”

Inspired by his experience farming pineapples, Abu now participates in our business mentoring effort in Bauya, with a number of other former co-workers.

On his own land, Abu has prepped three acres for planting 180 palm seedlings he has received from Just Hope to start a palm oil plantation.
