HOW WE STARTED
In 2017 because i always have that undying love for farming , we found a place about a hectare with my young brother .We planted green beans with that much joy of growing maybe 2 hectares when we harvest .The problem started when we reached the market with our produce .In Zimbabwe all the agricultural markets are controlled my middlemen , in short they are the guys who determine the price ,like in short they take produce at lower prices and sell at much more high prices so in short they reap off farmers .We sold our produce at a loss and it did kill me mentally so i told myself that we have to have a neutral market ,a place we can sell our produce without middleman ,a place we determine our prices .
