Frequently asked questions

With your support to our farmers, they will be provided with the resources to improve their productivity, reduce the risks and thus increase the profit of the farm. All Growsel farmers are provided not just with the capital to continue farming but also support from start to finish of each farm cycle. This includes trainings on global agricultural best practices, crop insurance, extension services, market access and assured buyer of crops and latest technologies integrated in their farm plan.

Farmers are grouped into clusters and are managed by our local Trustees. The local Trustee visits the farms regularly and monitors the progress of each farmer in reference with the farm plan they have submitted. The farm calendar shows the schedule of activities along with the resources and labor needed. Selling of produce will be coordinated by the local Trustee and the farmer. The buyer will be authorized by Growsel and shall pay directly through Growsel.

Growsel DOES NOT give farmers money. Growsel local Trustee partners disburses resources in the form of inputs and working capital to these farmers. Farmers are provided with the resources only at the time the product is already needed and only when the labor has been finished.

Traditionally, farmers needed to approach informal lenders and loan sharks to get the capital they needed to start a farming cycle. This made them profitless due to the high interest rates put upon them and most cases never get such loans. With Growsel farmers get paid for labor and at the same time take majority of the profit while getting trainings on global agricultural best practices - significantly better than other lenders. Hence, their great reception of the services of Growsel.
