FARMERS RECEIVE KSH 7.5M FUNDING TO BOOST THEIR PRODUCTIVITY AND PROFITABILTY
A total of eighteen Community Driven Development Communities (CDDCs) drawn from eight NARIGP participating wards namely Koyo/Ndurio, Tinderet, Songhor/Soba, Kapchorwa, Kapsabet. Lelmokwo/Ngecheck, Kurgung/Surungai and O’lessos have recorded a milestone after they received a whooping Kshs 7.5 million micro development fund from the County Government.
While presenting the first batch cheques to the 18 beneficiary CDDCs, Nandi Governor H.E Stephen Sang challenged the beneficiaries to be good forerunners for the implementation of the project to be emulated with other participating counties as well as make use of natural resources for the common good.
Governor Sang’s administration continues to empower farmers in different value chains for improved productivity and livelihood change through the provision of resources that will increase profitability in the sector.
In view of this, the County Government of Nandi through the department of Agriculture and Cooperative Development in partnership with National Agricultural and Rural Inclusive Growth Project (NARIGP) is financially supporting farmer’s projects through Community Driven Development Committees.
Preparation for disbursement of subsequent batches to the remaining CDDCs are ongoing and will be announced in due course.
