Uganda is an agricultural country with 98% of the population in Lwengo District depending on peasantry farming, from garden to house. We mainly grow maize, beans, cassava, banana and sweet potatoes. We keep the rest of the excess surplus from the garden in granary for consumption in the next season. Lwengo District has no machinery or technology to add value to cereal crops and we must travel 15-40 kms to Kinoni or Lwengo town council where milling machines are located. Economic opportunities are few as food prices are low; petty trade is conducted.
