Strawberries are not grown in great quantities in Kenya, despite great demand. Your support is creating a marriage of that supply and demand by giving companies a local source of strawberries, while allowing farmers, like Jane, to tap into a potentially lucrative and sustainable source of income to support their families.
Through this project, you helped farmers raise their income by 44%. You also helped women farmers, who are equal partners in making money.
For Jane Wangechi, that income is a godsend. It feeds her family, sends her children to school and the family is building a more secure home.
“Strawberries have changed my life and my family’s future,” she says. “There is nothing my family needs now that we can’t provide.”
