The farmers requires affordable quality seed, access to innovative equipment and well bred livestock, like poultry, rabbits and cows to venture in agribusiness. Also they need the right information about durability, safety and environmental friendly aspects bout the inputs.
Bad enough this isn’t the case as professional advice is both expensive and scarce and quality equipment is both expensive and in accessible. The Government of Kenya gives farmer incentives (through tax exception) and programs exists for free distribution of items whereby issues rises like a corrupt system of selection and distribution and lack of proper research and identification of the right partner of distribution and implementation of those items.
Big established NGO’s give items for free in temporarily programs, smaller NGO and commercial companies, like OneAcreFund, Techno Serve and Amiran sell their services /products without the interest for the farmer towards growth and sustainability but are more interested in selling their own products. According to FreeKenya free items or too much unfair market competition keep people passive and not creating ownership.
FreeKenya acts as an intermediary between the suppliers and the farmers involved in our MoneyGardenTM Concept. We facilitate the farmer access to quality, cost-effective farming inputs, supplies and innovative agricultural technologies by direct distribution and linkage to flexible distribution channels, including afters sales services.
