Hello Zidisha Family,
I am Samba Nixon, from the City of Kisumu in Kenya. Am a social entrepreneur, Human rights defender, Urbanist and a graduate Food Scientist, Technologist and Nutritionist for the past 20years.
I am the CEO of Ohigla Group Limited which is a private company incorporated in Kenya to provide agribusiness support services and food value chain addition. Am also the Chairman of the City of Kisumu Urban Areas Association (CKUAA) which is a non-profit civilian body providing oversight on the management of the City of Kisumu and promoting the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact of 2015 and The New Urban Agenda (Quito 2016)
We aggregate smallholder farmers through agribusiness training, Agro-processing and market access support services . We are currently working with urban farmers to promote vertical farming technologies and urban farming techniques.
We are also focused on Small Holder Rice farmers in the Lake Region Economic Bloc (LREB) Kenya through value addition in rice processing and packaging, sale and distribution.
Now we seek funds to purchase 10 packets Certified Seeds, 1,000 Nursery Seedlings and 20units of Organic Fertilizers for onward sale to the newly recruited farmers.
This shall allow farmers to commence planting and production of vegetables immediately and start harvesting from the third week. This shall allow them have own food for their households while at the same time get extra income from the sale of the produce to neighbours
This shall contribute to our growth through sale of farm inputs to the urban farmers whom are our primary customers
