Emelly Mwanza is a 24 year old Cotton made in Africa farmer from Zambia. She has two daughters, aged 2 and 4, and has started growing cotton shortly after her first child was born back in 2013. For Emelly, cotton is an important source of income. It allows her to provide for her family, have enough to eat for everyone and meet other household needs. Emelly has also received trainings in good agricultural practices, which has helped her improve her farming skills. “As a result, I have increased my cotton yields and income. I have built a two bedroom house, bought a cow and started growing other crops.”
