I’m 40 years old, a father of six children, and husband of two wives. I’m an agricultural farmer and I breed animals such as goats, sheep, poultry and cattle.

I have been involved in Boulkon Epicenter’s activities since its inception and, in the context of activities regarding food security, I have received several trainings in new technologies. Among the new technologies, there is the implementation of the biodigester.

After the explanations of the various benefits, I volunteered to launch its implementation. After six months of using this new technology, I can now perceive clear benefits.

I had a very good fertilizer that I used in my fields during the rainy season, which increased agricultural production.

I now have gas that my wives use to prepare the food, which allows them to save time and reduce wood cuttings, thus protecting the environment. For light, my children now use lamps to learn their lessons at night and so I do not buy petroleum, thus contributing to my savings.

As a volunteer for the implementation of this technology, I can give testimony that the benefits are many.

Over the coming years, I will contribute to a wider use of this technology throughout an information campaign and I will invite other producers to share my experience in this field.

Thanks to the partnership with The Hunger Project, we received several trainings that helped increase our agricultural production and thus ensure food security.

Thank you once again to Hunger Project and all its partners for this great support in food security.
