FAIM emerges as the winner of the 2015 Sankalp Awards for 2015.
Organized by Intellecap, the Sankalp Africa Summit celebrated its 3rd year connecting investors with socially responsible companies that are providing the most impact for their regions.
This year’s theme of the summit centered around accelerating innovation and entrepreneurship towards an inclusive Africa focusing on boosting the GDP and tackling unemployment. Held at the Strathmore Business School in Nairobi, Kenya February 5th & 6th other contenders included programs such as safe drinking water, renewable energy, mushroom cultivation and financial services.
Founded in 2011 and based in Kigali, Rwanda, FAIM (Forestry and Agricultural Investment Management) is the first tissue culture lab and plant propagation nursery of its kind in Africa producing clean, disease free planting materials for the farmers in Rwanda and surrounding countries.
FAIM Africa is tackling the challenges of providing clean plants and seeds as well as providing the Rwandan farmers with the knowledge and assistance in successful agronomy practices that will dramatically increase plant productivity reducing poverty and addressing food security in Rwanda.
Steve Jones, FAIM CEO, notes, “Using FAIM plants, it is common for farmers to see 5 to 10 times increase in crop production. With numbers like these, a farmer can realize strong profits and provide a good living for them and their family yet still afford to plant back with new plants.” Jones adds, “Our FAIM Farm School, which is free to every FAIM customer, instructs farmers with only the best agronomy practices to prepare, plant and care for their crops.”
FAIM (Forestry and Agricultural Investment Management) provides clean, disease free plants. Plants such as passion fruit, tamarillo, patchouli, pineapple, strawberry and banana plant varieties are available year round.
