« I was brought up in farming, but every time I saw former students from the school, they were slightly different from me in how they farmed. Therefore, I decided to attend the FFS so that I could train and do even better than them.
I joined the family farming school in 2014 and spent three years studying there. When I left the school, I started farming pineapples, papaya and bananas. I also bred pigs: that is where I now focus my activity and put into practice what i have learned.
My plantation provides me with enough money to buy fertilizers and feed my plants. The school has taught me to keep a book of my income and expenditure. Therefore, I always know if I am losing or making money. Without this, it is difficult for a farmer to make savings. There are people who are on work placements with me and I try to pass on to them what I learned at the school. You start the school poor, but you finish rich: rich in terms of money, but also in terms of knowledge…
My project for the future is firstly to buy a small piece of land to build a house, then to find a wife with whom I can found a family. »
