Enabling farmers access to finance, quality agri inputs, technologies and end markets.
Over 60% of Africans make their living from agriculture and 80% of them are in small scale farming. It can be said that smallholder farming supplies more than half of Africa’s food needs. As a group, smallholder farmers are among the poorest and most marginalized in the world.
Africa’s smallholder farmers face many challenges preventing them from scaling up their participation in the market- including insecure rights to land , lack of access to quality inputs and financial services, inadequate support from research, and post harvest loss caused by poor rural infrastructure, inability to access quality seeds and mechanization.
