Books Make Booms Creates Small Business Marketing Magic For Kenaf

We are currently partnering to have our custom book Kenaf, Seeding The World translated into French.  This project materialized when the English version of our book made its way to Togo, Africa, via Elizabeth Simonetti, a Kenaf, Seeding The World book buyer.  She had seen the book described and listed on KenafPartnersUSA.com and then ordered a copy from Amazon.  In Togo, she presented the book to an interested non-profit that is now helping Elizabeth spearhead the translation.   Once translated, the book will be distributed to Togo farmers in order to introduce kenaf as a rotational cash crop. 

Togo, Africa, is primarily an agricultural country located in Western Africa. The link below gives some good basic information regards this small nation.  https://www.britannica.com/place/Togo 

 

Understanding the value and uses of the plant kenaf within Togo’s agricultural population and economy should be of great value in raising the quality of life for its 8 million residents in the future.  By utilizing all the various parts of the plant for domestic and commercial purposes, kenaf will go a long way toward supplying food, clothing, and housing for both animal and human betterment in Togo and beyond.
