"When we were hosted at the resettlement center we depended on donations from the government and its partners but now we produce our own food. It all started when I became a member of the 7 de Abril producers club, where we received a kit composed of several seeds and tools (hoe, rake, watering can, machete, axe)", which was a lever to start with the production.

The incentives were not only limited to the kit but also to training and technical accompaniment and the availability of land for cultivation, which was the biggest challenge for most of the people living in the center. The technicians of the RCD project teach us new techniques in the demonstration field, which is being of great value in the individual fields, and for this reason my production has increased a lot”.
