Language Barriers / Published March 12, 2018 by Mary Olushoga

Language Barriers

In the project that we have been working on, should we interested in developing a mobile application, we will need to ensure that the app reflects the language of the community that we serve. Since much of the women that we work with do not speak English as their first language. This is a major factor that we need to consider, language.

Prototype

This section was a bit confusing for the team. Since we are not building any prototype's per se. But we spent sometime focusing on our business models and trying to figure out how to ensure that it remains sustainable.

Struggles and Ideas

It was a struggle deciding how to focus on the exact community that we were going to work with... but we decided on a specific geographic community and look forward to expanding the program.

Figuring It Out / Published March 12, 2018 by Mary Olushoga

Figuring It Out

We have a mission to help farmers and agricultural investors make the right business decisions by supporting the farmer’s expansion from from peasant or non-commercial farming to commercial agricultural production. My company’s competitive edge is our ability to offer innovative solutions that adds value to our client’s agricultural enterprises. By that I mean – identifying the right markets, helping out with simple innovative agricultural technology that produce results, increase profits, and create employment opportunities.

Our Mission

The AWP Network Agropreneur project is a workshop-based training project set to use quantitative and qualitative data to inform and help women farmers to improve farming techniques, practices, as well as increase yield and production at a reduced cost. The goal of this project is to have a significant impact in the agricultural sector and help women farmers move strategically from peasant farming to commercial agricultural production.

Our Background

This challenge will enable the women in our cooperatives to increase production on our paddy rice farm, which will be cultivated twice a year in both rainy and dry season using irrigation and inputs such as seeds, pesticides and fertilizer. Mary Olushoga, Founder and President of the AWP Network. Zanau Hassan Maikasuwa: is Project Director of the AWP Network Agriculture Program. Zubairu Emmanuel Ashindo: is Program Manager of the AWP Network Agriculture Program.
