These women from Khatlon province, Tajikistan excitedly admire tomatoes they just collected from their greenhouses. USAID Family Farming Program helped construct ten sets of greenhouses in four districts of Khatlon province. 420 people, primarily landless households, benefited from the greenhouses. The greenhouse program produced 59 metric tons of early tomatoes, of which 44 metric tons were sold at market and 15 metric tons were consumed or stored for winter use by the individual greenhouse owners.
