Our Agricultural goal is to improve the livelihood of Kenyans by ensuring food security through creation of efficient farming mechanisms. It is envisaged that the project will contribute to this strategy and raise incomes of rural households. The project will make interventions that rectify specific constraints and inefficiencies in the production, processing and marketing of 10 value chains; maize, Irish potato, sweet potato, banana, sorghum, pulses,
groundnut, French beans, mango and passion fruit. The farmers proudly boast of the benefits of the Ikonic machines as well as the support from the USAID.
