ACEFA Assists 77 Farmer-Groups

S eventy-seven agro-pastoral groups from the South  West Region have received  F CFA 374 Million funding  from the Programme for the Improvement of Competitiveness of  Family Agro-Pastoral Farms (ACEFA).  Group cheques were handed over  to beneficiaries  recently in the  Buea Council Hall  by the ACEFA  National Coordinator, Dr. Bouba  Moumini. The  event was supervised by both  South West Regional Delegates  of the Ministries  of Agriculture and Rural Development (MINADER) and Fisheries and  Animal Industries (MINEPIA).  The money will help construct  infrastructure, modernise and increase production capacities of  crop, animal and fishery farmers  from Meme, Fako, Ndian and Manyu Divisions in the Region. Recipient  farmer-groups are expected to sign  subsidy agreements with ACEFA  spelling out the implementation of  financing by donors and production  by farmers to enhance crop and  protein production in Cameroon.  Grants to producer groups range  from F CFA 500.000 to F CFA 6 000  000. For professional agro-pastoral organisations,  funding ranges  from F CFA 5 000  000 to F CFA 30  million. Since 2008  till date, ACEFA  has injected a  total of F CFA  1,544,598,792 in  the South West  Region. Beneficiaries have used the  money mainly to construct cocoa  ovens and pig pens. This money has  gone to 509 projects spread through  all six Divisions of the Region. As of  now, some 1.583 producer-groups  and 29 professional agro-pastoral  organisations are receiving supportive counselling on the field.
