Locals Prepare for Big Business

Elala Village, Ethiopia

 

Elala Village is one of the Transformational Community Development (TCD) villages we are working with in central Ethiopia. The TCD workers trained groups of villagers on how to produce seedlings. Currently, these groups produce drought resistant fruit trees, like mango, avocado, papaya, and other fruit trees. The villagers have been buying these fruit trees and planting them in their compounds. These groups can start generating more income by selling different fruit trees. The rest of the fruit trees are expected to harvest fruit within the next 3-4 years. They are also preparing big fields for a fruit tree farm. When we researched the area, we found that they will have a big market. So, if the groups increase their farm size, there is a big potential market in the area.

 

Thank you!
