The state has invested more than 8 billion francs in the project. The project impact is in 318 villages, 730 producer groups supervised throughout the province of Woleu-Ntem, and 858 micro-projects are financed.

The Minister Delegate to the Minister of Agriculture, Livestock responsible for the implementation of the Graine program, Patricia Taye, opened the workshop for sharing and validating the report for the completion of the Agricultural and Rural Development Project (PDAR) last Tuesday at the Meridien Hotel.

It was in the presence of the sub-regional representative of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (Fida) project, Bernard Hein.

When it comes to an end, the PDAR has cost the state more than 8 billion francs. This is at least the indication provided by Mrs. Taye by opening this workshop.

She especially indicated that it has reached a large audience in the province of Woleu-Ntem. Clearly, 318 villages were impacted by the project on 484 villages in the province. Nearly 730 producer groups were supervised throughout the province, and 858 micro-projects were funded in all areas of activity in target sectors.

GRAINE is Gabonese Initiative for Achieving Agricultural Outcomes with Engaged Citizenry. The scheme has been launched in 2014 and is a pioneering out grower plantation scheme as a JV between the Republic of Gabon (51% equity ownership) and Olam (49%).
