It is one of Missionland's most recent projects, which started in May 2016 in Burkina Faso. It currently affects three large rural areas from which the season's peanut crop was purchased in advance: six villages in the area north of Ouahigouya, ten villages in the district northeast of Kaya, and a dozen other villages in the area south of Tenkodogo.
The initiative was born with the aim of designing a project that, on a small scale, would try to give practical solutions to the main elements of fragility found in Burkina Faso: poverty, unemployment, malnutrition and the marginal role of women in Burkinabé society.
Peanuts farming is a good source of income and is a type of crop that goes well alongside the main subsistence crops of millet and sorghum due to its natural cycle and compatibility. In rural villages it is usually understood as an ancillary crop intended for sale and not for strict family consumption. To start the production cycle, the first harvest was purchased in advance at a fair price, 20,000 CFA for a 100 kg bag, allowing the various villages to invest the money not only for the production of the coming season, but also for the their contingent needs.
