Salifou Ahment, a 70 year old farmer, used to struggle to feed his livestock during the dry season when grassland becomes scarce. Now, instead of having to travel miles to buy food there is an animal feed 'bank', established by Concern, a short walk from his home. The bank, run by the community keeps animal feed in stock all year round and sells to local farmers at a fair and affordable price. 'When there is not enough food for the animals it is very hard. Before we did not have food for the animals close to us. We used to have to pay to travel to a market and bring it home. Now food is always available.'
