Our farmers have an average income of $275 per year – that’s only $5 a week – a meagre amount to support an average family size of seven. There are over 30,000 oil palm farmers in Kigoma.

Seed Change’s operations are based in the Kigoma region of western Tanzania. Once an important slave trading port, Kigoma is now a quiet, lakeside town. Farmers in Kigoma have been cultivating oil palm for over 100 years with over 80% of the population directly reliant on agriculture for their livelihood.

Seed Change builds on the local knowledge and expertise of our farmers to strengthen the oil palm industry in the region.
