Banana Business in a Box: transforming the lives of smallholder farmers in Tanzania

vrijdag 15 december 2023

Achmea Foundation and MauaMazuri are working together on a project to transform the lives of smallholder farmers in Tanzania. The project, Banana Business in a Box, provides smallholder farmers with access to high-quality banana tree seedlings and support for planting and managing their banana trees.

The project provides a comprehensive solution for smallholder farmers, including financing, seedlings, a business plan, digital support, and sales agreements. The financing is intended to help farmers cover the cost of the seedlings. The seedlings are specially grown in a laboratory and yield up to four times as many as traditional planting materials.

The project has the potential to have a significant impact on banana cultivation in Tanzania and Kenya. It can help to improve food security, stimulate economic development, and promote sustainable agriculture.
