"I'm the head of a family of two wives and nine children," says Barro Dossou. "If the yields are high, you can earn a good income from farming. This is very important to me because I want to secure my children's future. I use the money to build houses that I could also rent out if necessary." The farmer would like to have more influence on the price of his goods. "The price of my products is set by the buyers. But I would also like to have a say."
