"A few years ago, as it was very difficult to provide for my family, I thought about leaving to work in a mineral field. But then I was given a goat to fertilise my fields and training in agriculture. This allowed me to increase agricultural production and my household income. I can now feed my family and send my children to school. Today, I am glad I did not abandon them."
