By eliminating exploitative buying from the value chain, smallholder farmers are able to become financially independent, get enough money to take care of their families and needs thereby alleviating them from poverty.
AgroCenta is contributing to the agenda of feeding 9 Billion people by 2050 through helping smallholder farmers with information of best farming practices, access to capital to produce more to ensure sustainable food security.
In Ghana, women form about 50% of the smallholder farmer population and access to land for farming is a major issue. Land ownership has been a preserve for men in the past and AgroCenta is working with chiefs, community and opinion leaders in communities we work in to increase the participation of women in agriculture and land ownership.
By purchasing agricultural inputs such as machines and fertilisers, farmers can upgrade their farms, get a higher and more stable income and contribute to the economic growth of the agricultural sector in Ghana. In addition, AgroCenta aims to create a market for local specialised workforce that will assist farmers in increasing the value of their crops.
