Our name Heri Kwa Chakula is in Swahili language. Heri means; benefit in English and benefit means: do good, gain, profit and welfare. Kwa means: with in English We believe there is a good fortune out of food for farmers and consumers Thus our mission statement. "Blessed with Food" Thus we want to build that fortune to our farmers who do most of the work.
My team consists of five members. We have all done farming at some point. We know what it means to farm and then look for market. We discovered that the farmers do not make less profit from the yields, compared to the middle men and so called exporters. Our Team wants to eliminate the middle men and become the link joining the farmers to the market and make. And also become the one stop store for buyers and farmers in our community.
