Food crisis is not only a peasant problem like in the past , but is now more a nation-wide and world-wide crisis. Growing populations do not have a corresponding food production rate. Both the rich and the poor feel the impact of food price hikes today. Farmers in Mbaw plain - Cameroon lack good planting seeds, processing equipment and a marketing cooperative for their products. The project is inclusive with over 5,000 farmers from all groups of people in the community of 100,000 inhabitants.


CREDEV want to provide farmers with good planting seeds and training on farming methods to improve farm yields and harvests. The creation of an agricultural cooperative will protect their collective interest in marketing products for members.

Long-Term Impact

Improved health and life expectancy because of plenty food to eat. Gainful farming activities creating wealth for the poor and reducing youth unemployment and crime. Improved production and income owing to an effective reliable marketing unit.
