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

Organization(s): 
Institution(s): 

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.
