Leonard Bor, the County Executive for Agriculture, recently reiterated the Nakuru County government’s steadfast support for the cooperative movement. He expressed this commitment during his visit to the Kamara Avocado Farmers Group in Kamara Ward, Kuresoi North Sub-county. This cooperative received funding from the International Vision Center Organization, which they used to purchase avocado seedlings worth Sh 400,000 through a cost-sharing arrangement.
The County Government actively assisted by providing transportation for the avocado seedlings from the source to the destination, demonstrating their dedication to supporting agricultural initiatives. In addition to this, Bor assured the farmers of ongoing assistance in the form of technical extension services to boost their production in both crop and livestock farming.
The county has been at the forefront of distributing avocado seedlings to local farmers, aiming to encourage crop diversification, raise income, and enhance food and nutrition security. In line with their agricultural initiatives, Bor also visited the Kamara milk cooler, which the county seeks to operationalize, further promoting the dairy industry in the region.
