Alamson Banda is very happy with his harvest and his family can’t wait to tuck in. Living with his wife and 11 children, Alamson has grown Kaphulira and Kadyaubwelere varieties of sweet potato.

He started with five bundles of each vine and he hopes to have a good enough harvest to sustain his whole family. Judging by the fields, the vines are doing really well and he should have plenty. His younger children will particularly benefit as they’ll be able to have them for breakfast before going to school.
