Alhagi leads the National Cashew Farmers Association driven by 5,500 members who are working together with the EIF and ITC support to promote cashew nut production countrywide. With this support, cashew nuts are being made competitive in order to increase market sales by 5% to 10% with farmers' (like Alhagi's) savings going up from 100 Gambian dalasi (US$3) to 1,000 Gambian dalasi (US$30).
