Farming business - cut costs, increase profits
Studying economics at Yaoundé University taught Emmanuel Nguilé not only that farming could be a profitable business and a driving force behind development, but that to make money as a farmer, he would need to obey principles such as the economies of scale. He decided to cut his time and financial costs by setting up his own nursery for seedlings, and now cultivates 60 hectares of cocoa trees, as well as other crops such as plantain. He shows Martha Chindong around his farm, also explaining why pruning is so important to make cocoa cultivation both efficient and productive.
