Mosisedi Commercial Farmers Association, a body representing 18 commercial farmers in Ngwaketse South, will launch its logo and sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Citizen Entrepreneurship Development Agency (CEDA) in the coming week.
The Association’s Vice Chairperson, Quett Rabai told said that the signing of the MoU would mark and strengthen their partnership with CEDA.
“We registered our association last year. We got the certificate last December and started negotiating partnership with CEDA then,” he revealed.
“We have a bigger event sometime in March where the President is expected to officiate. Commercial Farmers from Botswana and even outside will attend, hence our swift launch of the logo”.
He said partnering with the developmental financial institution will go a long way in making them achieve their goal of producing more farm produce for the country.
The funding body, he said, is resourceful enough to pay them regular visits at their farms to get first-hand information on how they are progressing, as well as provide expertise where it is deemed necessary.
Mosisedi Association arable farming covers about 10 000 hectares of farming land growing such crops as maize and sorghum. They use the same dry land farming as the Pandamatenga farm. The launch and the signing of the MoU are expected to be graced by among others, Members of Parliament, CEDA CEO Thabo Thamani as well as senior government officials.
The launch of the logo and signing of MoU will be done on Wednesday at Tlotlo Conference Centre.
