The main challenge that keeps every farmer in poverty in our region is the absence of reliable markets. This may change if poor farmers are linked with agri-value chains, e.g. in the food & beverage industry. Our goal is to develop an agro-processing plant that will do exactly that, and thus create new markets for our produce. Details here.
Meanwhile, as we raise support for this plant, the only crop for which we can secure a ready market for our produce at scale, and without any post-harvest processing, right now, is sorghum. Please see the work (PDF) we can do if you helped us raise support.
