The African farmers’ stories: Market access for agropreneurs (Cont’d)
Our target market is not limited to farmers who can use smart phones but also to those who can’t, through the help of our agents. Our agents onboard and manage accounts for such farmers, as we do not relent in carrying our farmers along.
Agrolinka’s target market extends to the agro commodity traders, agro service providers and input sellers.
We urge the government to pick more interest in the agricultural sector, as these farmers are constrained by lack of business skills, remote farm locations, high transportation costs due to bad roads, lack of bodies that will regulate prices of produce that will aid them to interact on equal terms with market intermediaries.
Other investments they can help with are water access, storage facilities, better funded agricultural research & extension services and information to guide farming practices. All these would help in particular the youth to key into the value chains.
Ms. Linda believes creating more awareness on platforms like #theafricanfarmersstories will give farmers, especially the youth the opportunity to be heard. This in turn will help the youths know that agriculture is not for the old and also help some others who would want to venture into agriculture, have a clearer view of what they are going into.
