The Value of One, The Power of Many

Meet Bira Mbaye, a young chicken farmer

Jimmy Chicaiza

“In the sun, the heat was suffocating, it was at least 35° Degrees Celcius. That day, we went to meet Bira Mbaye, a young farmer specialized in raising chickens. He is a beneficiary of RESOPP, a union of rural cooperatives whose mission is to make a solid and lasting contribution to the living conditions of farmers. Through free training, he learned how to care for and protect these animals. He now has more than two hundred hens in his flock. In the photo, we can see his pride. Well done.”
