The Comoros Story
The Comoros are made up of 4 islands: Mayotte and three islands independent of France forming the Union of the Comoros (Grande Comore, Anjouan and Moheli). Grande Comore is a volcanic island.
The island suffers from a severe lack of water, the volcanic rocks do not retain water and there is little source. The main economic resource is the cultivation of vanilla. Vanilla, introduced in the Comoros before the 1930s, is cultivated on the four islands in a traditional way.
