"70% of juicy Kenyan mangoes never get to market. We asked small-scale farmers why their mangoes simply rot in the fields instead of being sold for cash, so they can send their children to school and provide for their families. The farmers explained how the links needed between the farm and the market simply don’t exist. We said, “We think we can help you with that.”
