Farmers Defy The Odds In Lesotho

After the support they were receiving from WFP ended in November 2013, the farmers of Ha-Mohapi village defied the odds and worked to produce a flourishing fruit tree plantation. The proud farmers are today the envy of passers-by who stop to see how the trees have transformed a once barren area.  


Lesotho is a lower middle-income country that is food-deficit and land-locked. Maize is the staple diet. A large proportion of poor rural households do not have access to agricultural land and many of those who own land do not have the necessary agricultural inputs such as fertilizers and high-yield seeds.
