According to the April 2019 World Bank economic analysis, Kenyan households that are exclusively engaged in agriculture contributed 31.4% to the reduction of rural poverty. Over 70% of Kenya’s poor and hunger-stricken people live in rural areas and depend on agriculture for their survival. Growth in the agricultural sector is estimated to be over ten times more effective in reducing poverty compared to growth in other sectors in poor countries. This could increase if more efforts are directed to increasing productivity for smallholder farmers and improving the business environment for job creation, welfare gains and poverty reduction.
Advancing knowledge and skills on agriculture and food security development will contribute in creating a more competitive and productive agricultural sector and increase food security for Kenyans while providing jobs for the rural youth and women. This is in line with Kenya’s initiatives on food security and rural development which are also part of the Sustainable Development Goals. TransFarm Ventures transforms farming through modern sustainable agricultural practices to reduce hunger by ensuring continuous supply of farm produce and reduce poverty by encouraging agribusiness among youth and women. We practice greenhouse crop production and offer agribusiness training to rural youth and women.
