Joyce is in her mid-40s and mother of five. She wanted to add to the crops she already grows by being involved with the improved sweet potato project. She grows the sweet potato alongside her maize, groundnuts and tomatoes in a field she rents from her neighbour.

In the future she is hoping to raise enough money from her sweet potato harvest to buy herself a piece of land to farm and expand her tomato business.
