Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2010
This description of Haron Wachira's work was prepared when Haron Wachira was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2010.
Through a model that relies jointly on aggregating production, co-ownership of agricultural businesses, and retooled value chains, Haron Wachira has created a surprising win-win scenario for subsistence farmers and agro-processing businesses in Kenya. This is impressive not only because of the unlikely partnerships formed, but because the agricultural sector in East Africa is chronically mismanaged and poorly coordinated.
