This takes me far back, says Pa Francis, to when I ran five machines like this for MAPCO, after two weeks training. An enthused spontaneous Sakuma Woh Yeah follows from the spirited FINIC technicians before we see Hope Sakuma’s first cassava grater under construction by skilled Salone youth. We’ve been husbanding our resources carefully and with some profit from honey and donations to our farm fund we’re in the market for farm machinery to add value to our crops. And with this grater we can quickly process our cassava into gari, foo-foo and flour proudly supporting FINIC and Salone industry, local youth jobs with the benefits of a quality machine, in-country servicing and repair. This sturdy Salone-built machine will see sterling service in Sanda Magbolontor processing our two cassava farms harvesting on a biennial rotation helping rural communities adapt to climate change with nutritous drought-resistant cassava.
