Mary Akutu, Sweet Potatoes: A Woman’s Crop For Vihiga County, Vihiga County, Kenya

by | Nov 7, 2017 | What Does $1000 Do?

The TPP seed grant made a big difference. We were able to train 100 women smoothly and effectively and buy the needed material for the trainings. Before this grant, women in these communities were not able to produce enough food for their families due to lack of planting materials and skills in agribusiness management.

Most of them earned less than a dollar a day and only ate one meal a day. The grant enabled us to better serve this community by providing them with certified planting materials and helping them acquire the skills needed to change their lives positively.
