Angola: Peasants Face Difficulties in Transporting Goods to Andulo

The Agricultural solidarity Cooperative for Development, Peace and Social Progress (CASCDPPS) in Andulo, central Bie Province, has been facing difficulties to transport agricultural products from Bié, due to the lack of means of transport.

Speaking to ANGOP, the chairman of the association in Abdul Gabriel da Fonseca Mitur, highlighted that in this moment the cooperative has 3,000 cabbage heads and two tons of carrots to be commercialized in the centres of logistics and distributions of agricultural products linked to the Programme of Acquisition of Farming Products (PAPAGRO) in Chinguar.

Gabriel da Fonseca Mitur said that he has already established contacts with the municipal administrative authorities with the objective of handing over vehicles to transport products up to Chinguar municipality.

On the other hand, besides the transportation of products, he said that the cooperative faces difficulties, such as lack of tractors for facilitating the mechanisation of the fields plus the insufficiency of fertilisers, seeds and production tools.

For this agricultural season, the official said that it has already been prepared 105 hectares of arable land for production of maize, beans and diverse vegetables.

The CASCDPPS of Andulo municipality is made up of 156 members.
