Halima prepares a meal with tomatoes straight from her greenhouse.
Halima and her husband and sons have worked hard to make their greenhouse successful.
“We start working on it first thing in the morning, trimming the trees and cleaning up the place,” she says.
They started planting seedlings in early November. With Anera’s technical guidance, the family has been following best practices in agriculture by using compost as fertilizer, ensuring good ventilation throughout the greenhouse, and keeping the soil clear of weeds.
Halima says that their greenhouse has provided income and food for her whole family. And they can trade vegetables from the greenhouse for other things they need.
“This project is our means of survival," she says.
