Ugpos is a group of 1,623 onion growers from the province of Sanmantenga. The growing of onions gives disadvantaged farmers in the region the opportunity to increase their family income.
Since the start of Trias in Burkina Faso Ugpos has made strong progress in several fields. Trias trained the employees in financial management and member participation. In terms of networking the progression is remarkable: thanks to the support of Trias, Ugpos is now playing an active role in several networks, which has made the organisation a lot more visible on a provincial level.
For Ugpos the years ahead are meant to consolidate the growth without skipping any steps. Trias will support the onion growers in terms of leadership, among other things. To do so we will use Leatra, a self-developed methodology.
