“Feere Diyara” (marketing has been good) is an initiative led by the international agricultural alliance (CECI, UPA DI and SOCODEVI) aiming to reduce the poverty rate among vegetable and grain farmers in the Malian regions of Koulikoro, Mopti, Segou and Sikasso. We focused our actions on access to better commercialization conditions, on quality products and services, as well as on well-adapted infrastructure for commercialization.
