“I participate in the ISA program because I have a deep conviction that proper structures and technical know-how to manage farm value chains will enable our team to disrupt the vicious poverty cycle that has plagued small-scale farmers in Africa for several generations.”

    Linda Kamau (37 years) is a social entrepreneur from Kenya. She is the founder and CEO of Malian Agribusiness Solutions, a social enterprise that champions sustainable food production and food processing activities that generates sustainable income for small-scale farmers.

Her ISA project focuses on farm product differentiation and the potential to add value to farm products that have traditionally been sold fresh from the farm. The main objective is to champion sustainable food production and food processing activities in Africa that enhance land productivity and higher income margins. These activities improve the livelihoods of small-scale farmers and afford them a dignified life.
