Broulaye DIARRA, 40 years, is a vegetable producer. He learned crop production from his mother and made it his career.
 
On his land of 3 hectares, Broulaye grows mainly vegetables such as celery, beetroot, turnip, cabbage and others. These vegetables are sold to women, who re-sell them to the customers in the city. With this system, both the producer and the women re-sellers earn a living from the activity.
 
“Many people think that vegetable producers are not able to earn a living with their activities. Today, apart from people working in top hierarchy of the public sector, it is rare to find a public servant earning more than us per month,” says Broulaye.
