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:
– Legal personality (if a member of a cooperative has a problem, it is the cooperative
that solves it and not the individual).
– Cooperative can sue and be sued.
– Cooperative does not pay taxes.
– It provides services to its members.
– Government gives assistance to cooperative.
Types of Cooperatives:
– Marketing Cooperatives where members are mostly involved in marketing.
– Production Cooperatives where members are mostly involved in production.
– Processing Cooperatives where members are mostly involved in transformation.
– Handicraft Cooperatives where the main activities are centered on handicraft.
– Thrift and Loan Cooperatives where the main activities are centered on savings &
loans.
