After the Bozoum Farm Trade Fair couldn't come without a following one in Bouar!
Father Benjamino, Italian from Valtellina and Jacob Sanze, Centralafrican from Bouar are taking care of the co-ops and are responsible for trainings and follow ups for more that 110 GROUPEMENTS (small co-ops) in the area.

Saturday and Sunday 18th and 19th, we hold the event. This year more than 115 groupements attended the fair, even if we had some rain showers on Friday and Saturday night, it was still crowded.
