Locally tailored training for Namibia’s small-scale poultry farmers
Agriculture is the backbone of Namibia’s economy, people’s livelihoods, food production, and food security. With poor rainfall received in the first quarter of 2023, increased repo rate, high cost of living, and continued economic effects from the COVID-19 impact, we are made to say, the majority of the total population faces acute food insecurity – hunger on a daily basis – reaching over 70 percent in many rural areas.
Through the Common Good Foundation support, the @amo-omo fintech platform will help Namibia’s agri-entrepreneurs and prospective farmers to begin seeing beyond the current crisis and start laying foundations for future recovery.
We have partnered with the SMEs funding platform, @amo-omo, in implementing an unprecedented humanitarian program to protect rural livelihoods amid continuing drought and extreme economic crisis, and will support more than 6000 people across all 14 regions this year aiming at upskilling the farmers in the critical aspects of new business, farm and financial management.
After the farmers are given their theoretical training, a team of experts led by poultry mentor and permaculture specialist, Pendukeni PK Amunyela, visit each farmer individually to personally assess their business and to give them recommendations and practical advice at the production site.
