REAP Success Story: Training and Quality Seeds Produce Immense Benefits for Horticulture Farmers


The Rural Enterprise for Alleviating Poverty (REAP) Project was funded by USDA and implemented by Winrock International.

More than 350 farming families received training and high-quality seeds through REAP, allowing them to earn substantial amounts of income by growing cucumbers on their homestead land and pond dikes. The supplemental income makes a notable difference in the livelihoods of these families and, perhaps more importantly, the vegetables allow them to enhance the nutritional status of family members.
