Project Description:

A large number of people live under absolute poverty in a meager condition here in democratique republique du Congo this majorly due to increasing wars here in eastern Congo and deadly diseases. They are deprived from the resources and their livelihood condition is very poor. For transformation of the country into Peace and Prosperous providing means of earning and livelihood is a basic requisite for which banana growing might be one of the options to overcome hunger/famine among congelese. Despite the fact that women have been liberated, they still face a big challenge of poverty amongst them. Women constitute biggest part of the Dr.Congo population. We initiated this banana project after realizing that banana growing can diversify the economy.
