Did you know that in Kenya, small scale farmers make up about 75% of employment and 75% of agricultural production? While the region as a whole has been experiencing economic growth, there has been limited progress in agriculture, due to food spoilage and wastage as a result of inadequate storage facilities.
Research shows that farmers lose between 30 to 40 per cent of the food produced and the country is far from attaining food security. Effective budgeting and planning pre and post - harvest period, is the key in reaching the desired storage practices.
Hifadhi app-team aims to create a farmer-friendly phone application that aims at advancing ready information to farmers on storage options that are pocket friendly and help in reducing wastage.
