Investment imminent for the growth of black farming community


Access to training, finance and entrepreneurship opportunities remains critical for the growth of South Africa’s black farming community, said Lemang Agricultural Services, a subsidiary of Afgri, in its self-published article yesterday.

The head of Lemang, Marion Shikwinya, said: “With food security becoming an increasing concern for South Africa and the rest of the continent, it’s important that agri businesses such as Afgri get behind our farmers.”

Afgri offers a wide range of financial services that they are looking to adapt for new farmers, Shikwinya added.

Lemang was specifically created to train, develop and mentor upcoming farmers into becoming full-scale commercial producers through financial assistance.

Shikwinya confirms that Lemang has trained and supported over 650 farmers in the last four years.
