Small holdings make up 90% of farmers in Africa. Only 5%of these farms have access to mechanized equipment and improved seeds, while others still rely on simple tools and rudimental practices. Consequently, their level of productivity is relatively low in comparison to farmers in Asia and the developed world. Also these farmers don’t have the capital requirement to cultivate above subsistence level, thus the average farm size is 0.5 hectares.
We seek to bridge this productivity gap and provide finance through credit facility by establishing farm Estates, where we lease farmlands, supply inputs, mechanized equipments and train farmers of best practices to improve yield and reduce costs. At harvest, we act as middlemen between farmers and consumers of farm produce.
