Today, I spoke to a policeman who is also a farmer in Busia (where his family lives). He took some time to educate me about the challenges that we have for #food4Kenya and agriculture. These are some of the things that he told me.
He told me that he has in store 200 bags of maize that he is unable to sell because @NCPB_KE is taking too little maize at bad prices. "They want to take my maize at Sh2300, which is just my cost of production. How is that business? How do I pay back the loan I took" #Food4Kenya
While we spoke, he called a friend of his from Uasin Gishu who is a larger scale farmer. Kirwa, the friend, has 8,000 bags of maize in his stores. "@NCPB_KE is only taking about 2 lorries per farmer and even for what they have taken, they don't pay on time!" #Food4Kenya
