Joseph Nganga, Programme Officer
I have worked as a Country Programme Officer since 2011, but before that I worked in IFAD-funded projects in Kenya. When I was recruited to work at IFAD I was overjoyed. Starting as a national officer and now participating at the international level has been great - blending hard facts with experience drawn from the field and spicing them up was quite a contribution.
Seiko Yabumoto, Assistant
I've been at IFAD since 2006 initially as temporary staff and in 2007 I started working with the governing bodies office as an assistant. In 2011 I become Assistant to the Director & Treasurer. My roles at IFAD have been a great way to be exposed to IFAD operations – all official documents pass through the Governing Bodies office and all the IFAD commitments and deliverables are recorded. That was a great way to be thrown into IFAD's work. I have brought previous experience and knowledge with me from the private sector and the fashion industry. Everything that you learn, you never throw away. At IFAD I have been able to build on these experiences.

Community Radio reaching out to small scale farmers in Mozambique
Local radio stations can be a powerful means of communication, particularly to smallholder farmers located in remote rural places. When listening to the radio, they feel connected to the rest of the world and become better informed.
