Let’s take a moment to look back at one of the 2019 success stories that’s worth celebrating: The farmers following Kansanshi’s Conservation Farming Program who have turned their subsistence farms into profitable businesses!

Learning tried and tested methods of increasing productivity is what has led thousands of farmers to turn their subsistence farms into successful for-profit businesses.
