Small-scale farmers from the Bezin region, the most affected by drought and where soils are less fertile and therefore farmers are most vulnerable. Agriculture represents almost the only source of income for the Petite Rivière de Nippes municipality: fruits, yam, melon, beans, and breeding of cattle and goats. The average cultivated area per family is 0.32 to 0.50 hectares. This is very little, partly because of desertification which makes the land infertile and require intensive work.
