Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project supporting women entrepreneurs who are coconut farmers. The prices of copra which is the dried meat of coconuts fluctuates and there is no way of knowing or predicting price decrease or increase. Farmers in this way is very vulnerable and we want to increase their economic base by supporting the intercropping of food crops to coconut farms. We are starting to train women how to utilize used sacks and other containers in order to grow sweet potato under coconuts. Sweet potato matures in about 6 months and the resulting crop is high in nutrients and well-loved by consumers as main food or snacks. We uses colored sweet potato because they are more nutrient dense. We have produced for this period more thank 2,000 sweet potato grown in sacks and we will distribute this to women farmers. Hoping for your continuing support. Thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora Sayre
