Marko Chiumia, Green Ventures
Flame Tree Initiative met Marko Chiumia when he participated in our 2017 Development Entrepreneurship Lab. That same year, he founded his first social enterprise, K-Farm Centre. Its goal was to provide smallholder farmers with access to affordable farming technologies. Coming from a family of farmers, Marko has a personal understanding of the hardships that they experience and wanted to make a difference. K-Farm Centre focused on sustainable farming, but the environment has cross-cutting issues which encompass agriculture as well as biodiversity conservation, aquaculture, energy, and waste management sectors. Thus, K-Farm Centre relaunched in 2019 as Green Ventures with added services and products that comprehensively address the challenges of rural farming communities in Malawi.
