Agriculture – A Promising Market For The Diaspora

Somali Farming and Agriculture

Over the last decade, remittance flows from diaspora communities to their countries of origin have been steadily increasing. In Somaliland, the Somali AgriFood Fund drove diaspora investment in agricultural production and boosted the monthly income of Barwaaqo Marketing and Catering Services Company by 500-600%. With government support and agriculture-friendly legislation, agriculture could benefit from this substantial source of funding and expertise.
