When you partner with a farmer to purchase their harvest, it allows them to be paid for their production upon delivery without delay. Receiving cash is so important to farmers that they would rather receive 20% less and receive cash at harvest then delay payment. Your loan allows them both full payment and cash at harvest. Our on-the-ground partners, Oasis Agro, will be the purchasers and processor of your farmer partner's grain. Access to the capital you're providing allows Oasis Agro purchasing power at a reasonable interest rate. Most importantly, it allows them to work with and purchuse more production from local farmers.
Contributors will partner directly with vetted entrepreneurs by providing working capital to launch and operate small-scale egg farms in remote villages. High impact opportunity that greatly reduces to cost and improves access to protein in remote areas.
AgGrandize would like to extend a huge thanks to all the volunteers from Mound City and Fort Scott, Kansas who joined AgGrandize in this effort. The project was executed better than we could have ever hoped. AgGrandize would also like to thank Luke Haines at Roofmasters for donating the use of the tele-handler and Kyle for dropping it off at the bin site. A big thanks goes out to Sandin Slaubaugh at Reif Welding and Construction for the use and operation of the crane.
This project is to raise funds for partnering with Meshach and his family who are small-scale farmer’s in Kenya. He currently has a honey bee project which he uses the income to support his family and their work in the local community. Meshach works with widows and the caregivers of orphans in his local community. The goal of this project is to help Meshach purchase the equipment needed to efficiently and safely care for and expand his honey bee business. We plan for this project to produce a sustainable income of $700 per year for Meshach and his family. We will close fundraising for this project on January 1, 2019.
