Mary Awinja Akutu notes that increased population in Vihiga, Kenta has been reducing the size of the land and thus food production. She hopes that through her project, Sweet Potatoes: A Woman’s Crop for Vihiga County, household enterprises use said crop to mitigate food insecurity, increase economic opportunities and promote healthy lifestyles. Through recruitment, Mary will train them on the crop then will proceed with vine distribution, planting and harvesting.
