- Goal 1.Poverty Reduction (for small holder farmers). These farmers ordinarily depend on middlemen to buy their produce. The problem here is that the middlemen take a significant margin from both farmers and retailers. In most cases the farmers do nt even make enough to recoup production costs and end up in a cycle of poverty. By paying the Farmers on average 20% more on their produce, Mwanga Farm is directly enabling reduction of poverty.
- Goal 1. Poverty Reduction (Vendors)- enabling vendors access the produce directly from farmers avails vendors the produce at a reduced price by up to 15%. Most of the vendors are self employed women running small shops and kiosks. Better buying prices is saving them much needed margins.
- Goal 5. Gender Equality- about 80% of vendors are women. Traditionally, these women go through a lot of hustle as they get the product for sale from middlemen at inflated prices. Our business is directly enabling them make a better living by delivering the products to their shops and at better prices.
- Goal 12. Reduction of Food Losses. Part of the funding we are seeking is to beef up cold chain. This is a key area that will directly lead to reduction of food wastage.
