Thanks for the advice Kate,
I can partner with DCHRI another organization I am working with, but I would like to know how I can indicate that in the application.

Rugemalira Yes I think it works very well,  In rural places most of these smallholder farming families do subsistence agriculture and so most don't consider it much as a business and because they only get what to eat and that's all and so we find that very many youth headed families are practically living unemployed or on a stagnant level of development just because they produce only what they consume and the excess is used in the gardens as manure. So with us apart from ensuring that they exchange food, we also buy off this excess food that they cannot eat and can't sell at market competitive prices and so they do not have to be taken advantage of by very much profit oriented traders who practically buy the food at 5% the price they sell it and yet they still cannot buy enough but we are hoping to partner with a lot of large export companies that we will supply this food. 
Thank you very much, I hope I answer your question to the best.
