Meet Our Agriculture Interns!

As part of our agriculture program, MFK provides opportunities for young graduates in Haiti to gain tangible experience in the agriculture field. For the next three months, we have two wonderful interns who will be learning about our research method, farmer training, peanut purchases, and more. We are grateful to have them as part of the team! Here’s a little more about them:

  • Why did you choose Agronomy as a career choice?
    I choose agronomy as a career choice because I like agriculture, so I wanted to have deeper knowledge about it.

    Everything is going well. We participated in all training and saw how to plan the training in the field with different varieties of peanuts.
  • What are your goals for the next three years?

    Familiarize with the different peanut varieties, learn how to use fungicide, learn how to plan the training, and participate in farmer training with the farmers.

    I preferred agroecology because agroecology advocates more or less organic agriculture, therefore no chemical products. In summary, we protect the environment and health.
