How an Affordable Greenhouse Can Turn $1,200 in Revenue into $120,000
For Artur Mucachua, a 47-year-old Mozambique farmer with seven children, a greenhouse changed his life. He wasn't a farmer by training - he received his formal education in South Africa, joined the army for five years, and worked in coal mines for ten. When he decided to move back to Mozambique and start his farming operation, he had just two hectares of land.

Artur had gotten word of a new kind of greenhouse designed by World Hope International in partnership with Penn State University that was affordable, and highly effective. The Greenhouses Revolutionizing Output (GRO) Project, funded by Securing Water for Food , is designed to help farmers minimize water consumption, while maximizing crop production.
