Moreover, through this project Puratos GPV will be trained and skilled in LEISA techniques, which they will be able to replicate and train more farmers on.
  • At the level of the smallholder farmer, the Leisa project is in the short term (after 2 years) expected to eliminate more than 75% of expensive, external inputs, through the integration of a balanced number of animals. Cacao production is expected to rise by 15-20% and their diversified income should rise by at least 80%. Moreover, the production of cacao and Livestock is more sustainable and respectful of the environment.
