A farmer from Illboru, Arusha dealing with Vimamaya (bush sweet potatoes) farming. Vimamaya is a chaga name for local bush sweet potatoes found around the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. This species is slowly becoming extinct and my vision is to bring back and promote this nutritious and medicinal (TIBA LISHE) ingenious variety of sweet potatoes around the world(global community).
I have preserved the seeds, distributed to other farmers and stakeholders and improved the farming techniques of these sweet potatoes. Through this around 150 farmers have benefited. Some of the outcomes is that this potatoes has been a life saver for diabetics,ulcers, heart attack and Hypertension patients. It is also a memory enhancer.
