Improve Our Community

I have been a town dealer for 8 eight years. I decided to go back to rural and develop my community. I had been careless with my money. Five month ago i arrive in my rural area Keroka. I started planting grass across slopy eroded areas and then cut terraccess across the steep ground. I rotten there rubbish which i lay at the bank of nearby stream. I took a step to obtain manure to ad fertility to the soil to improve harvest. Now i can give knowledge to others in the community. I have food for my family and for sale. I will never again suffer hunger and my people in my community are coming for advices.
