Farmers in the Kenema district are to receive support from the African Development Bank (ADB) through a project titled Agricultural Settlement Rehabilitation Project (ASREP). Speaking to the media, the Secretary General of the National Farmers Association of Sierra Leone Ahmed Siaka Koroma disclosed that the project would run for a five year period. He explained that the first phase of the project will run from January to December 2008.He says the project will give support to the rehabilitation of tree crops plantations, low land farms, production of seeds and revival of poultry and fish farming in the district. He said Kenema was selected as one of the districts to benefit from the project because of its high agricultural potentials, vulnerability and incidents of poverty. The arrangement will target small scale farming enterprises and farming households as the key beneficiaries. It also aims at reducing youth unemployment and strengthens peace and security in the country.
