Sub-Assistant Agricultural Officer (SAAO) Milton Boiragi has been working with USAID’s Agriculture, Nutrition and Gender Linkages (ANGeL) project since 2016. In addition to being responsible for providing technical training to 25 farmer households on improving their agricultural productivity and promoting the consumption of nutrition fortified agricultural products, Milton also processes requests to disburse training allowances to those households. This story tells of his experience after the ANGeL project began making training allowances directly to households using mobile money.
