Interaction with Consumers

Our interview with Borkot Ali, a farmer from Kishorgonj. He grows rice in his land all the year round but faces serious challenges to supply enough water to the crops. And situation worsens in Summer. During last Summer he lost almost 40% of his crops due to lack of proper irrigation. He generally collects water from a nearby river in large barrages and use it for irrigation.But with that much water he can barely irrigate even half of his total cropland. As summer advancing with scorching heat and less rain, his tension of feeding his family increases. According to him, if this situation goes on majority of the farmers will have to give up and find other sources of living. Borkot Ali also said he is ready to pay if he can get a sustainable irrigation method that can save his crops.
Borkot Alli is not the only one.Our country, our world is filled with more people like him who are fighting everyday to find a ray of hope. Let's end their sufferings, let's bring an end to hunger.
