(Bowe Mission Farmer’s Association)
Bowe Mission Farmer’s Association is a farmers’ cooperative based in Kasungu District, Malawi. BOMFA is dedicated to empowering farmers in the local area by offering farming advice and instructions on what to plant. BOMFA also supplies many of their farmers with loans and aggregates the crop of all the farmers for marketing. The majority of BOMFA’s farmers are women and youth who are in need of an income and are dedicated to maximizing their efficiency.
Since 2015 Orant Charities Africa has been supplying BOMFA with loans for its farmers and advising in expanding their operations. Orant supplies loans each farming season to BOMFA so that they can loan seeds and fertilizer to over 500 farmers in the cooperative. BOMFA ensures that the entire crop is sold in a timely and efficient manner, meaning a more stable income and life for the farmers.
Orant Demonstration Farm Plot
Orant Charities Africa’s campus has a 33-acre farm plot which is used to demonstrate proper farming techniques and correct use of fertilizer and seeds to local farmers. This ensures that farmers have access to the latest information and farming techniques in Malawi so their yields can be as high as possible.|
