Based on 10 years of research in Masvingo province and reported in the book, Zimbabwe's Land Reform: Myths and Realities, this series of 8 videos shows the experiences of some of the farmers who gained land following Zimbabwe's controversial land reform from 2000. These voices from the field demonstrate that there have been some successes, and that land reform has not been the disaster that is sometimes reported.

In this part, when Mrs. Dauramanzi came to the Hippo Valley Sugar State in 2003, there was  just 17 hectares of cane to work with her family. Soon they discovered that it wasn´t  enough to live. The only way to survive then was reform and diversify the land. Some maize, new tractors, and the cattle gave this family more incomes, the efforts were succesful and the business is expanding.
