Established in 2012, Mudug Agrolive Farm “Agrolive” is an 18.75 hectare farm located in Galkayo, Puntland. Agrolive grows and sells a range of fresh fruits, vegetables and cereal crops to wholesale suppliers, market vendors, and other retail outlets. Despite the success of their operations, the farm only cultivates 43% (8.25 ha) of its total land, and relies on seasonal rainfall as the primary source for irrigating its crops.
In order to scale its operations and secure a more reliable water source, Agrolive sought investment to dig a 214m borehole and purchase a solar water pump. With Shuraako’s assistance, Agrolive acquired the necessary capital for locating and digging a well sufficient for maximizing production on current cultivated land. With these improvements, the farm will be able to meet rising demand from consumers in the face of mounting drought concerns.
