FIT has established a network of nine (9) information data collectors called Agricultural Market Information Advisors (AMIAs), with the support of VECO East Africa, a company that is now positioned in Arusha and Moshi. It has activities in the   districts of Aremeru, Simanjiro, Kilimanjaro, SIHA, Lower Moshi and Arusha central.  We are seeking to partner with financial institutions, insurance firms, off takers and input services to complete the cycle of services demand by the target farmers and traders mainly in Maize grain, Beans and Rice sub sectors.

FIT targets to have over 50,000 farmer profiles over the next two years, currently the program has profiled 5,300 farmers in two regions.
