Small-scale farmers can be their own "donor". This is what I have learned while working with vegetable farmers in Ségou, Mali. 2SCALE’s target was to sustainably increase the incomes of 10,000 producers, in partnership with Dutch company East West Seeds International (EWIT), which specializes in high-yielding, disease-resistant varieties. Over the last three years, my young colleague Fatou Keita and I have helped to link EWIT with a network of 17,150 farmers (8,160 women) and 27 small and medium enterprises.
