Mhodzi #TheSeed Connecting the grain

As members of Mhodzi we live to connect people the grain, alleviating poverty

The world will witness growth to about 9 billion people by 2050, hence the need to put in place strategies and models to feed the people

Use Case

The smallholder farmer who have challenges in obtaining information on the market is the main target of our concept. Other users include the urban farmer who needs to improve his/her way of farming and profit obtained from the agribusiness.

Potential

Mhodzi connecting the grain is meant to change the world through the integration between the farmers and the consumers. This means creating a direct link. Farmers need to get real value from the agricultural produce so as to boost their moral for maximum food production that will sustain the world by 2050. This concept is also meant to put to use the land that is left idle, through this application farmers from their various levels will be able to exert their potential to sustain the world

Business Case

The business model for this concept is Direct sales model. In this model we are looking at the relationship between the farmers and the consumers. The model is also aimed at connecting the farmers (Peer2peer) this means sharing of resources transforming agriculture in Africa

Objectives:

  1. Information on sustainable agriculture production and marketing is readily available to smallholder farmers
  2. Improve implementation monitoring and evaluation, help countries generate credible data and statistics & strengthening analytical capacities
  3. Put in place governance and coordination mechanisms focused and coordinated action towards the eradication of hunger and malnutrition
