From planting two kilograms of Masindi maize, Aminadab harvested two tonnes; all from just one acre of land. Applying home-made compost on his farm improved soil fertility and increased crop production.
Now, Aminadab is a producer of food who is an integral member of the community. Barely a year after the training, Aminadab and his group were able to gather six tonnes of maize which they sold at a good price.
Using his savings, he bought a shop which he rents as a cereal bulking store to make additional income.
Deogratius, a member of the self-help group, describes him as careful, hardworking and trustworthy.
“His shop has brought services closer to us. We trust him by bulking our cereals here. You know, if you have land, you have wealth; but trust is worth the value of land.”
