"The Moso Seeds project was an eye-opener! The support I received allowed me to increase the size of my banana plantations but also to understand that development is in our hands. I would like to sincerely thank the agronomist from UCODE (local partner of Louvain Coopération) for his help. Now I have a large production of banana trees and thanks to the sale of the bananas, we have been able to build a house, get workers for our crops and provide education for our children."
