Format

Summary
"Agriculture is key to the local economy in Niger, with Galmi onions prized throughout West Africa. ... Farmer Yaro's daughter Salamatou is betrothed to Adamou. The couple hope to marry soon, but after each harvest - much to his future son-in-law's frustration - Yaro postpones the wedding yet again. He says he wants his daughter to be married with dignity, and that means having enough money to pay for all the expenses tradition demands. As the growing season progresses, Yaro is under increasing pressure to finally set a date for the wedding. Meanwhile, the market price of onions begins a rapid downward slide and the engaged couple come up with a solution to speed their marriage."--Container.
