How to make money from farming

One area that one can invest in and get good returns is agriculture. But making money in the sector means having knowledge and skills on crop production or livestock keeping. Dr Annemarie Kamuyu, the co-founder of Kilimo Faida, knows this only too well.

She believes that improving agricultural productivity requires development and adoption of suitable agricultural technologies. In 2008, with the help of a colleague, she founded Kilimo Faida, which aims to find markets for farmers and update them on market prices. Dr Kamuyu, who implements and oversees the workings of the project, says it also helps farmers get access to seasonal credit and obtain farm inputs like seeds, agrochemicals, fertilisers, soil testing services and the expert advice of agronomists.

The organisation is also engaged in training farmers in agricultural best practices. She explains how financing the farmer works and how one can get the most out of agriculture. She also gives us her thoughts on money.
