Farmers Pride is linking very disadvantaged marginalized rural farmers and agro dealers to quality and certified agricultural inputs ,Key services and information through innovative and comprehensive agrovet franchise model, village youth agents and mobile technology.
Rural smallholder farmers and agro dealers suffer very poor access to quality agricultural inputs, key services and information.This disadvantage limits their ability to succeed in their farming enterprises. Distribution of agricultural inputs in rural villages is poor, inefficient and farmers plus agro dealers suffer exploitative pricing ,inefficient deliveries and poor quality inputs
We are reaching 10,000 farmers through a network of 4 franchise outlets and 8 village youth agents.We aim to grow Farmers Pride network to 150 franchise outlets across Kenya next 6 years before expanding across Africa.
We have received several awards including Winner D-Prize global distribution challenge 2017, Finalist Nestle CSV PRIZE 2017, African Development Bank 21st century innovation agriprenuer , Finalists CTA-PitchAgrihack 2016, Finalists Seedstars World 2016.
