The door was wide open when i got into the office. I went to the secretary's office and asked her if i could talk to the director of Maendeleo ya kilimo organisation . She went into the director's office and signaled me to go in. I spoke to the director a bout the law productivity of my firm and he promised to intervene. Two weeks later he called me and when i went to his office he gave me a bag of fertilize and some maize seeds and put me on a two week education on how to make my firm or shamba productive. The lesson were so important and helped transform me into a good farmer with increased productivity of my land in each season.
