Marbi-Agrics is not for profit social enterprise organization that was formed in the year 2018 as a community based organisaton with a mission to empower small holder farmers with tools and financing they need to grow their way out of hunger and poverty.
How We Help Farmers
Marbi-Agrics is concentrated on subsistence farmers in western Kenya. We provide a complete, functioning market system – making it possible for even the poorest and most rural farmer to generate more income, and permanently solve their own hunger problem.
Empowering Local Groups
We find existing self-help groups mostly made of women farmers. Bringing farmers together makes it possible for them to economically interact with markets.
We take the latest practices from top academic agronomists, and translate that into simple, easy-to-understand lessons.
Our planting materials are a significant improvement on old food kernels currently used for seed – commercial seed is professionally graded, stored, and selected. Our fertilizer provides badly-needed nutrients to soil that has been stripped bare over decades of poor management.
Connection With Harvest Markets
We act as a bulk-selling agent, allowing our members to access much higher prices. This cash creates a savings-and-investment cycle that leads to self-driven, permanent growth out of hunger.
It is estimated that only 0.3% of Africa’s poor are insured in any way. Marbi Agrics has pioneered a crop insurance product that pays farmers in the event of a significant drought or disease.
