Tupakase

Efficient and cheap labor for farmers

We offer cheap skilled and non skilled labor to farmers to increase their yields

Use Case

Mukasa, a maize farmer in Kayunga district is doing farming on a 2 acre plot of land, he has only one child and lacks the funds to but expensive machinery like tractors so human labor is the only option he has but him and his son cannot be able to do all that work in time. So, Tupakase provides him with sufficient labor to be able to do all the work at him farm hence minimizing the losses he would have made if him and his son did the work alone. Besides we provide him with the basic knowledge and skills about farming and help him with the accurate and timely information about certain decisions he has to make like, when to plant, when to harvest and where to sell using our skilled personnel. With this he can increase on his productivity.

Potential

When we carried out research in a short pilot and discovered that most of the farmers actually can produce more than they really are producing and this all is because of insufficient labor to do the work at the farm. So through Tupakase most of them can be able to produce at maximum capacity, this helps to increase the farmer's income thus helping to fight the viscous cycle of poverty among farmers. Our consultancy services also help these farmers to the right important decisions to avoid losses.

Business Case

Tupakase provides labor recruitment to both large scale and small scale farmers, we provide them with both professional and semi skilled labor, and for this we charge them a fee that they all can afford, which we use to pay all the company employees and the rest is put to the company growth. Farmers can also opt to pay in terms of a percentage of their produce since most of them may not have ready cash especially the small scale farmers. Tupakase will not only help farmers reduce losses but also help them increase their productivity and also through our professionals who teach them, the farmers are able to acquire knowledge about the farming.

Objectives:

  1. Provide cheap labor
  2. Avoid losses made by farmers due to insufficient labor
  3. To help farmers in making the crucial farming decisions wisely
