Project Description and Impact

We are a services delivery organization that provides full farm management service to smallholder cocoa farmers in Ghana. We signed a contract with the farmers and then take over the management activities. Our main purpose is to generate a sustainable income for the farmer from his own farm. Our target groups are the old age, sick, absentee, and widow. Our next revenue is the production of compost fertilizer from the cocoa husk and other industrial by-products from the communities

Currently, we are managing 62 farmers' farms with 150-ha farm size out of 1.9 million ha of cocoa farms already established belonging to 800,000 smallholder farmers in Ghana. The compost plant has a 20-ton capacity per day. In the next five years, Emfed planned to scale our operation to reach 1200 farmers with an aggregated farm size of 2000 ha whiles producing  200 tons of compost per day to help reduce the over usage of inorganic fertilizer. We are seeking 750,000 USD.
