Like many Haitians, Laurent and his family struggled to make a living by farming the country’s barren hills. The stony soil and poor bean seed quality produced small harvests.
Laurent joined a SALT Agri-Plus group in his community, where he was introduced to a new variety of beans. Hearing about the beans’ high quality and hoping for increased harvest, he decided to plant them.
The increased harvest of these beans helped Laurent pay for his children’s education. Today one of his children is an engineer and another is an agronomist. Laurent says the beans from Agri-Plus played an important role in helping his children achieve these careers. “Thank you, God!” he exclaims.
