The Vision – Out-Growers

EMPOWERING AFRICAN FARMERS

through shared value

We Are In Business For The Long Run…

… And Well On Our Way

Our vision is exactly that – our VISION!

We have come a long way, but we still have some way to go. So far, we have established a farmer club and we are just about assemble and put together our first Harambee and HUB in Tanga.

Before long we will be able to test both Harambee and HUB – making sure they are ready for the harvest in March 2017.

We cannot wait to see the very first batch of Cashews come out of Tanga – pealed, processed and packed!

Impact

Making a difference in rural African farming societies is a key part of Out-Growers.

Challenges in cashew farming: Delay of payments and too low prices. Sometimes the cashew nuts will be stored until prices in the market have gone up or until a proper buyer shows up. This means that the farmers don’t know when they will get paid for their produce. With the volatile pricing and timing it is very difficult for farmers to plan for the future.

Challenges in cashew farming: In Mkinga District the farmers sell their raw cashew nuts through a warehouse. Here the nuts are stored until sold. With this system, the farmers will get a receipt when delivering the raw nuts. The receipts can be used for borrowing money until the cashews have been sold at auction, and the farmers paid.

In Mkinga, the farmers however don’t receive these receipts. In this way the farmers never know when they will have access to cash, and how much their cashews will be sold for.
