Elishililia Mollel: pulses have enabled me to transform my family’s life

Elishililia Mollel is a living example of how pulses farming can transform somebody’s life. She is a widow with three children living at Kikatiti village about 30 kilometers south of Arusha town. Ms. Mollel depends on small-scale farming as the main source of income. Her husband died in 2005 and unlike what was expected of a widowed woman in her community, she refused to be inherited by her husband’s relatives as per local customs and instead decided to work hard on her own to raise her children.
