 4.0  Background of SOWEDA and RUMPI

 

 –   The aim is to reduce poverty in rural areas.

–    The women were thought why and how to produce in great quantities e.g. cassava, maize etc.

In September 2010, kilograms of maize and other foodstuffs was given or sold to farmers at cheaper price to increase their production and increase their standard of living.

–   31 tons of maize can plant 1550 hectares and a hectare is 100 by 100 (100/100)

–   A hectare can produce 4660 tons of maize.

–   1kg of corn is 195 FRS per kilo.

–  95765 tons of corn is produce from the 31 tons of corn.

There are55 farms with which RUMPI Project work with them.

In 2009, 300kg was still given to these women and 16 tons was realized.

Marketing: Marketing from the view point of farmers is to sell their produce. Their function is to store their commodities, transform it if necessary or possible, retail, promotion.

–  Marketing has transfer of ownership as a main characteristic.

–  Timing is also very important in marketing.

–  Place/positioning of a market is important.

– Utility i.e. the form in which you sell.

Transformed crops are more preferable than non-transformed crops because its more profitable.

– Standardization i.e. price per kilo/liter.

–  Risk bearing.

–  Market information i.e. sensitizing farmers on how to produce ad sell.

Formation of a Cooperative.

What is cooperative?

A cooperative is coming together or a common bond that is democratically managed. A cooperative can help farmers to sell their produce. A member must contribute money for the functioning of the cooperative and every member is important in the cooperative. A cooperative can bargain better than individuals on issues such as prices, quantity, quality, weights and transportation costs..

Advantages of a Cooperative:
