“This platform will allow farmers to produce sufficient quantity of produce with international quality standards to satisfy buyers’ demand,” he said.

In his remarks, Naming’omba Estates human resource manager Thomas Chakukuma said they want to empower female workers by giving them a platform to engage in some businesses to improve their livelihood.

One of the farmers, Lizzie Lombe, said the project will empower women economically.
