Makueni County government has signed a memorandum of understanding with Safaricom and bidco, to support farmers in the county. This comes via the mobile platform digifarm, which offers smallholder farmers access to information and finance. Bidco has contracted 640 farmers through digifarm since November 2018. Out of the 10,000 metric tons of sunflower required by bidco annually in the processing of edible oils, Makueni County has been allocated 2,000 metric tonnes.
