Hatua Farming project

This year’s rainy session has been an opportunity for Hatua Likoni to cultivate 3acres of its 4.5 acre piece of land in Kwale County that was bought last year.

On the 3 acres of land that has been cultivated we have planted maize and once the harvest is done by the end of August, we plan to sell the produce to the neighboring schools and use the profit to develop the farm. With this sessions profit we intend to install piped water to make it possible for us to farm throughout the year and increase our yield. We intend to recoup whatever profit we make back to the farm so that the farm grows itself. 

This is the first time Hatua Likoni has ventured into agribusiness and done a farming project of this magnitude. ‘We are all anticipating a good harvest’ said the Program Director, he further expressed that it is an interesting project to do as the results are short term unlike the other set goals within the organization.
