USAID Happy Farmers

Through the generous donations of the American people, USAID has helped Kenyan farmers grow their produce and given them access to more profitable markets. We travelled to various counties in Kenya to meet these farmers and document their stories.

 

Instead of giving money to farmers, through the KHCP, USAID empowered farmers to produce more by giving them access to equipment and training programmes on improved farming technologies.

 

Farmers are able to deliver fresh vegetables to waiting markets even during the dry seasons thanks to water harvesting methods like drip irrigation.

 

Others have moved from traditional crops that have flooded the market to others that fetch better returns per acre.

 

 

 

 

From county to county, there has been increased harvests and more profitable returns for farmers.
