From the Fields to the Markets

Before planting the first seed of the season, the farmers of Namuli have many decisions to make. Where, when, how and for how much? These are just a few of the critical questions that farmers have to consider when planning their fields and looking to take their harvest to the market.

To support Namuli’s farmers in answering these fundamental questions, Legado: Namuli’s field team held a training for developing a business plan. By working with farmers to better understand market dynamics and crop systems, we can support them to accurately calculate production costs, evaluate market prices, and create a strategy amongst themselves to ensure the highest profit for their hard labor.

With this knowledge, farmers can not only ensure that the right amount of money ends up in their pockets, but can know how much to save for the future, making them better prepared to reach their goals.
