In many sub-Saharan African countries smallholder farmers are vulnerable to food and income insecurity. Population growth, pressure on land, climatic change, and migration affect agricultural production. Transformation of the agricultural sector is seen as crucial to growth in the sector and Kenyan economy. In particular poor farmers are running the risk of falling into a poverty trap of limited farming inputs, low production, nutrition and income deficits, loss of assets & labour, limited farming inputs, etc. In this way, smallholder farmers’ livelihoods can become unsustainable.
