FISP inputs reach remote areas on time

FISP inputs reach remote areas on time

Timely delivery of farming inputs has been applauded by farmers from
the remote districts of north-western province.

Farmers in the province have already received inputs before the on-set of rains.
Bishop John Kaumba of the Methodist Church in Zambezi district says
there should be no excuses for farmers to produce adequate foods.

Maggie Mafuta of Kamukanda Cooperative Society in Ikelenge district
shares the same sentiments, adding that President Edgar Lungu means
well for the farmers.

Nyimba Investments has been awarded a contract by the Ministry of
Agriculture to deliver inputs to 16 districts under the revised FISP
programme called Direct Input Supply programme because the e-voucher
system had some challenges in some districts with limited
infrastructure in communication and banking facilities.
