Empowering Local Farmers: The Story of Jeremiah

September 5, 2014

Jeremiah Magaja is a rice farmer in the Kilombero district. A USAID training helped him become a certified seed farmer, which multiplied his income. Learning good agricultural practices empowered Jeremiah to become not just a farmer, but a business owner. This USAID project is part of the greater Feed the Future mission to reduce poverty and hunger in Tanzania through improved health and agricultural practices.
