Ministry Officials To Educate Coffee Farmers On Cherry Fund
Agriculture ministry officials will be visiting coffee farmers at the grassroots to educate them on how to apply for the coffee cherry fund.
Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya on Friday said the exercise should have started but was delayed following the outbreak of Covid-19 in the country. He spoke at Caritas in Nyeri during a meeting with officials of cooperative societies.
The officials are expected to pass the information to farmers.
It was established after farmers complained they had no credit facilities as banks charged prohibitive interests.
