After rapid farmers acquisition, we have reached 100 farmers under management. New farmers are starting seedling production and we expect our production to reach about 25t monthly by the end of the year.
Compared to average income farmers working with Project Alba experience a 200% increase of income. For some farmers like Phan Khom that increased his land last year with his own investments, this paid off as he reached 2500$ of income.
We are facing a strong drought due to El Niño. However our farmers are using that time to deepen their ponds and increase their water resources in order to be more ready for future harsh climatic events.
