CNIL To Cultivate 10 Acres Cassava Crop In Bomi

By David Pamas Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent 

TUBMANBURG, March 24 (LINA) - Consumers Networks Initiative of Liberia (CNIL) has begun planting cassava on over 10 acres of land in Suehn Mecca Statutory District, Bomi County.

Making the disclosure in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in the district on Monday, NCIL Executive Director Alexander Flomo said the farmers have already planted cassava on 50 percent of the land.

Flomo said the cassava, when harvested, will be processed into fufu and farina to be sold by the organization to improve the financial status of its members and other citizens of the district.

He put the cost of the project at over US$3,000 which, he said, was raised by individual members of the organization.

According to him, 50 percent of the proceeds from the sale will be given to humanitarian organizations catering to the Ebola-affected children while the balance will be distributed to caretakers of the needy in the district.
