The government will focus on agricultural transformation to drive the country’s economic recovery.
President William Ruto said the adoption of technology and innovation is the catalyst for this transformation.
” Famers who embrace technology can enhance their productivity and boost their earnings.”
He was speaking on Monday when he opened the Twiga Foods Distribution Centre in Ruiru, Kiambu County.
Twiga is a technology driven company that connects farmers and retailer.
“The success of this model shows that there is room for growth in the market and that farmers can be organized to deliver bigger volumes,” he said.
“Empowering farmers is a path to beating poverty and ending inequality in our country.”
In addition, the President said the launch of the Hustler Fund will expand financial inclusion and derisk agriculture to attract younger farmers.
He said the Government will keep facilitating better market access for small entrepreneurs.
