Serve Africa is investing into cassava (yuca) farming as a short-term strategy to locally sustain her projects in Liberia. The first part of this project involves investing into 100 acres of land. Cassava is a locally grown plant. It's roots (tuber) is widely eaten across Africa, in the US, and other places in the world. Cassava can be processed into Gari/Farina, Acheke, Fufu, or it can be boiled and eaten with gravy as breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The processed cassava is marketable internationally and, therefore, has a great potential of income generation over a short period of time.
The cassava plant has a reliable farming culture. It's never impacted by a change in whether condition, be it plenty rainfall or lot of sunshine. It's tuber is ready for harvest within six months of planting. We are raising $10,000 to buy the first 25 acres of land near Ganta (Liberia). Our goal is to start the Cassava Farm Project by April 2022 upon acquiring a property (the first 25 acres).
