Together with DanChurchAid this project aims to support and strengthen the agricultural production and income security among small scale farmers in rural Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe has experienced a dramatic decline in agricultural production leading to several food shortages over the past 10-15 years. Very often, it is small scale farmers suffer the most when the rain fails or the crops grow bad
This project aims to contribute to an 80% increase in food and income security among vulnerable farmers in Mt. Darwin, Muzarabani, Binga and Lupane.
Warehouses & cattle banking
The intervention will improve farmers’ income through greater access to markets and by establishing warehouses where they can store their produce until the prices are more favorable.
Lastly, the project will introduce an innovative credit system called ‘cattle banking’, which allows farmers to obtain loans by depositing their cattle.
The loans will help them purchase new inputs to improve or scale their agricultural production.
