I am a 29 year old Social Entrepreneur: I have spent the past 10 years innovating and working within the agriculture space. My life’s purpose is to improve the livelihoods of small holder farmers in my community, country and Africa. I used my own savings from a part time job in a car garage after high school, to set up my own farm at 20 years of age, to create employment opportunities for other young people and contribute to food security. Working first hand with farmers helped me identify their challenges especially with reaching markets and inspired me to leave my farm and found MOBFiT Ltd, a tech company using basic technology to connect farmers and adding value to their produce.
