Florence Bakenya

EN

 

Florence Bakenya, 50, is a single mother of 4 children. Her eldest son fishes on Lake Victoria and the family produces banana, cassava, potato, jackfruit, lemons, chickens and pigs. They also burn charcoal on their 3 acres of common land.

 

The plantation now surrounds much of Florence's house and she worries that her land will be taken from her. Without it she has no means to provide for her family and no security for her future.
