Under Kisoboka approach, 16 farmers were give pregnant Sows on a revolving approach. A total 14000 banana suckers (10,000 tissue culture plantlets & 4,000 suckers)  were distributed to selected and well prepared farmers in 2019. 

A total of 44 Community based facilitators received bicycles of 24 were procured by Kiboga district LG and the 20 were procured by Hon. Ruth Nankabirwa. However, 24 CBFs were not given garden tools in the Sub counties of Kapeke, Dwaniro, Lwamata & Bukomero.
