SPHI Brief 23: Scaling-Up Sweetpotato Through Agriculture and Nutrition (SUSTAIN) in Rwanda

At the time of the project phase out of field activities in June 2017, we had reached 103,529 direct household beneficiaries. At the same time our collaborating partners reached 20,236 indirect household (HHs) beneficiaries. During the threeyear project, we set up 39 Decentralized Vine Multipliers (DVMs) (46% male, 54% female) who sold vines worth US$ 361,801. Average yields have increased from 3-5 t/ha to 1215 t/ha. Farmers made roots sales worth US$ 154,040; two processing cooperatives made sales worth US$ 6,898.
