KASINTHULA CANE GROWERS
Kasinthula is in Chikwawa district, south of Blantyre. We started sugar cane farming in 1997. We are 282 farmers, with 70 women and 212 men. We use the Shire River for irrigation. We sell our cane to Illovo mill for processing.
We became Fairtrade certified in 2004. With the Fairtrade premium, we have constructed a clinic and houses for the workers and drilled boreholes.
