In Banzana, the villagers are noticing the negative effects of the drop in rainfall on yields and are trying to compensate for them with human labour.
I am Haby Sangaré, Banzana.
Here we only practice agriculture but there is no rain. We fertilise our fields by hand, we grow groundnuts to meet our needs, but the rain does not come, our crops dry up. Groundnuts, millet, even okra plants lose their leaves. We also do market gardening but we don’t have any equipment, it is us, the old ladies, who are going to draw water from a depth of 30 metres to water the crops and benefit from it, but what benefits can we draw from this situation? We are in this situation while waiting for death.
