Source text - French Marie est déterminée à le faire. Elle élève seule ses 11 enfants et a du mal à joindre les deux bouts. Il a été difficile ces derniers temps d’acheter les intrants agricoles (comme des engrais ou des semences) suffisants pour augmenter ses rendements et sa production. Elle avait déjà entendu parler d’autres projets dans le Département du Sud mais n’avait jamais réussi à s’inscrire à temps pour obtenir un soutien.

In recent times it has been difficult to purchase enough agricultural inputs (such as grain or seeds) to increase her yields and her production. She had already heard about other projects in the Département du Sud but had never managed to register in order to obtain assistance.
