Seifour SARR is a management graduate. Unemployed after his studies, he ventured into the production of sweet potato on 2 hectares. Today, he cultivates 20 hectares and employs 30 people.
When one of his relative asked him to come back to the village to cultivate the land, Seifour was not very sure about it. But the relative assured him that he would succeed. He gave Seifour a land of two hectares and helped him to get a loan from the bank. And it paid off. Today, Seifour’s business is doing well.
“I am known as a sweet potato farmer and I contribute to job creation. Beyond that, I am contributing to the food security of the country,” says Seifour.
