Trading for Malawi's farmers, and the future

Malawi's farmers have been cultivating new crops with the National Smallholder Farmers' Association of Malawi, supported by the Government of Malawi and EIF. Bester Glandson is one of them, now armed with skills in soy and groundnut farming and an increased income. And with a new export strategy, the country is eyeing regional and global markets for its wealth of agricultural harvests from farmers like Bester.
