Most of the new jobs were filled by women who carry out the work manually, writes Angop.
The cooperative estimates, this year, to harvest more than 43 tons of various products. Last year, the value of the harvest was around 90 tons.
Félix Kiavineni Olofua, chairman of the inspection of the cooperative, in statements to Angop, explained that the forecasts of reduced harvest are justified by the scarcity of fertilizers, seeds, insecticides and the irregular rains.
However, to combat obstacles and for the agricultural year to be successful, the company is waiting for funding of 40 million kwanzas from the Agrarian Development Support Fund.
According to Angop, if the amount is provided, it will be used to purchase a vehicle to transport the production, a tractor to increase the cultivation areas, fertilizer, seeds and motor pumps.
The cooperative has a total of 600 hectares, of which 120 are in production. Bananas, tomatoes, onions, cabbage, carrots, among others, are some of the goods that the cooperative produces. In addition, the company also practices poultry farming and raises swine and goat cattle.
