ENTERPRISE: AJSYSGOD Millet stockage and resale

ENTERPRISE: AJSYSGOD Millet stockage and resale
Miriamou shows bags of millet that her association in Godola, AJSYSGOD, bought to sell in a few months when the price of grain rises. The association, and group members individually, benefit from the profits. In this way, the association becomes financially independent, creates a joint savings account, and they have more money for education, healthcare, and emergencies. (view small | med | large | orig)

The harvest is in! AJSYSGOD association members work together to cultivate a plot of land. Depending on the season, they grow tomatoes or onions, and the association and the members benefit from the shared profits. More income means more purchasing power for education, medicines, and the creation of a group savings account to support each other in times of need. (view small | med | large | orig)
