We can connect you with the project owner if you would like to fund this project directly

Problem Statement

We just got a call from a lady, she had lots of questions about our post-harvest/drying of our onion crop… For us, the process takes about a month but am shocked, there is this chemical that can dry your onion in a day!!! People grow your own food or get it from reliable sources. The government should regulate the agricultural industry

AITAP BUSINESS KENYA (Agricultural Industrial Technical Application Project) is working with the government of Kenya and county governments on the BIG 4 AGENDAs specifically on food security and manufacturing.
AITAP BUSINESS (K) join Kenyans people into groups of 10 to open a shop within Nairobi County on sells of agricultural organic food that has traceability to its origin pre- and post-harvest. It also gives free labour to all farm tenants contracted on the food production.

Currently, there are three major challenges that AITAP BUSINESS is facing which have called for funding from MavenCORE; –
