Drinking Water from Well

This photo was selected to be prominently featured at the Frontiers in Development Forum.

 

An employee drinks from a faucet at NUAC Farm in Northern Uganda. NUAC is one of the first agribusinesses to receiving financing under the African Agriculture Capital Fund, an investment platform supported by a USAID Development Credit Authority guarantee. As a result of the $1.23 million in financing, NUAC tripled its land resulting in more food production so Uganda can feed itself and its neighbors, created a tractor leasing program to increase crop harvests at nearby farms, and sells high quality seeds to 5,000 small scale farmers, improving crop yields and income throughout Uganda.
