The County government of Nandi through its Ministry of Agriculture has signed an agreement with Apollo Agriculture to help farmers transit to commercial farming through provision of finance, farm inputs and market access. Nandi Agriculture CEC Dr. Bernard Lagat said the partnership will go a long way in empowering small scale farmers and maximizing their profits.
He revealed that a total of 5,000 farmers across Nandi have benefited from the company. He said loans are also available and are payable up to the harvesting season and farmers should take advantage. Apollo Agriculture is a technology company that helps farmers in emerging markets maximize their profits through provision of affordable loans, high quality farm inputs, and also assesses farmer credit risk and cutomizes each package to the farmers’ locations.
