Only 3% of arable land is currently irrigated in Kenya. Furthermore, inadequate access to financial services required to acquire more productive farming assets to increase yields causes smallholder farmers to confine themselves to low-risk/low-yield crops and sub-optimal agri-inputs. Nutri You offers smallholder farmers an asset-based loan that includes distribution of seeds and fertiliser; financing for micro drip irrigation equipment; training on agriculture techniques; and market facilitation to maximise profits. Nutri’s goal is to increase and improve agricultural performance in Busia County, Western Kenya by improving irrigation technology, thus providing farmers with enough water to secure traditional harvests and, over time, to shift to higher export-value crops. Doubling the yield through irrigation facilities will reduce poverty for about 500 families or 2,500 individuals.
