They later sell the spinach and make a profit. I make at least 400 shillings (4USD) per day, sometimes 300 shillings. When I make 400 shillings the children use up 200 and I save 100 shillings in my account and the remaining 100 I use for soda or water, so things have really changed."

They have all been planted. We no longer struggle to get vegetables from far away using motorcycles. Everything is here. We don't have problems here anymore. Even fish ponds can be developed here using this water. These farms have improved our lifestyle."
