A Story About How Your Gift Multiplies

Jumosthene testifies to the multiplying power of an Ag-Pack - farmers are teaching farmers!


"Before I received training from Food for the Hungry (FH), I didn’t have anybody to assist me or to teach me good farming techniques. As a result, I didn’t have a good return at harvest time. More often, I lost everything due to a lack of practical knowledge in the field.

"When FH decided to plant a demonstration farm in Cachiman which aimed to teach farmers in the community good farming techniques, I decided to be part of this great project by becoming one of the Cachiman Lead Farmers.

"Like the other Lead Farmers, I received a lot of agricultural training, such as, soil preparation, good planting techniques, inter-cropping, companion planting, crop rotation, watering, fertilization, natural fertilizer preparation, and so on. Beside the training session that I received, I am often supported with good vegetable seeds such as peppers, cabbage, carrots, and leek.

"And then, since I was trained, I am able to train other local farmers and encourage them to adopt and apply better farming practices.

"After learning how to more effectively cultivate vegetables with the small field that I now have, I can say that I get more profit (could be two or three times more) than when I was cultivating a much larger piece of land. From this small vegetable garden that I have, I expect to earn between 6000 - 7000 Gourds ($160 - $186 CDN) from the leek harvest alone.

"My family and I now always have food to eat at home, especially vegetables. As I try to take good care of the gardens, the yields keep increasing from harvest to harvest. The money that I saved can be used for seed purchase next year. When FH supports farmers with seeds next year, another person will have the opportunity to be served instead of me because I will be able to purchase my own seeds.

"Because of my success in this field, I observe that there is rising interest in agriculture especially in vegetable production among the farmers now in Cachiman. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all FH staff for the good support they give to change people’s lives in Cachiman. God bless you all."
