  • Boost agricultural production with a target of 10,600 tonnes of rice and 20,300 tonnes of fruit and vegetables.

Beneficiaries

I chose to sell vegetables because they are produced here at home. In the evenings, I go out to buy vegetables from producers in their fields and sell them the next day. This market is really important because it is the biggest in the area.
