AGRICULTURE

Lima was originally founded in response to the needs of South Africa’s disadvantaged agriculturalists. Small-scale farmers in South Africa’s rural areas are isolated from key markets and services considered essential for developing successful agricultural enterprises.

In order to meaningfully integrate smallholders into the agri-business industry, farmers must first be able to forge linkages to quality input suppliers and sales markets, as well as have access to credit, technical support and mechanisation.
