KABANDA CHULU, Lusaka
MUSIKA Development Initiative director of operations Joshua Munkombwe says the organisation will continue supporting farmers through the creation of output market opportunities and increased access to inputs.
During the handover of a truck and tractor to Mule-Stus Agro Services Limited aimed at boosting the company’s cassava value chain and supply in Luapula Province, Mr Munkombwe said the support will enable the company to invest in haulage services to the ever growing cassava sector and other crops.
“The equipment support provided by Musika is meant to enhance efficiency in the value chain and increase farmer access to a more competitive transport regime which will help to reduce their costs significantly.
“Our mandate is to see that farmers graduate out of poverty and so it is important that they have access to assured output market opportunities and increased access to inputs tied with market services and a more competitive transport regime which will help to reduce their costs significantly and increase their gross margins,” he said.
