The Farmer and His Corn

Juma, 68 from Palisa District, Uganda had a nice story when i met him in 2015.
"Farming was different in the early days. We had cooperative unions. We could harvest a lot and the cooperatives could buy what we couldn't sell. This helped us to avoid surplus and losses. Most importantly was the supply cooperatives which provided us with inputs required for our work, for example seeds, fertilizers, chemicals. This brought down the costs of inputs because the unions used to enjoy economies of scale compared to when I make direct purchases from commercial suppliers"

Perhaps a little too cheerful a treatment for such a serious topic, but this is beautiful nonetheless.
