OUR CORE VALUES

4.Excellence – We challenge ourselves to the highest level of learning and performance
5.Transformation – We believe in innovation and urgent action in whatever we do.

OUR MODEL

We provide an end to end solution from smallholder farmers by providing them with inputs (improved seeds, fertilizers and appropriate pesticides) on credit and we offer a flexible repayment that allows them to pay throughout the cropping season.
Train them on the best production practices and purchase their produce at harvest for resale to high value urban markets thereby providing them with premium markets devoid of middlemen.
