When people consider their investment options, they usually turn to investments in companies or stocks. Instead, with Fedgroup’s Impact Farming, you invest in a product, such as a blueberry bush, solar panel or even a beehive. The mechanics are simple: download the app, choose your investment, and pay as little as R300 for it. A professional farmer will then farm your asset on your behalf and you will receive capital once your product is harvested.
Expert beekeeper, Zongezile Jack, is one of these professional farmers. He says that bee farming requires a lot of capital as it includes the construction and maintenance of the boxes needed to house the bee colonies. He is very happy about the investment that Fedgroup has made into his venture, as it now allows him to make enough to support both his family and himself.
Fedgroup’s Impact Farming, therefore, focuses not only on environmentally beneficial products, but also helps create sustainable economic growth in the job sector.
CEO of Fedgroup, Grant Field, explains Impact Farming as transparent, simple and that it makes a difference in people’s lives. Even though it is only possible to invest in blueberry bushes, bee hives and Solar panels at present, Grant is planning on adding more investment options in the foreseeable future. He encourages more farmers to contact Fedgroup in order to ascertain the viability of their ventures as additions to Fedgroup’s Impact Farming initiative.
