Kachaje:FISP not helping.

The Economists Association of Malawi (ECAMA) has reiterated that the farm inputs subsidy program (FISP) is not helping Malawi given the country’s economic base.

ECAMA President, Henry Kachaje, said that FISP is failing to produce tangible results despite having massive donor support since its inception during the late Bingu wa Mutharika’s reign.

“As it is clear that donors are not resuming their budgetary support to the country any sooner, government must make sure that its policies in the agricultural sector, which is still a major economic base for Malawi, are revisited to make sure that it benefit the country,” said Kachaje.

Kachaje further said that government should make sure that marketing elements are there and farmers are civic educated on how to manage agriculture as a business that can earn them millions.

Kachaje then called on stakeholders including banks to help small holder farmers and medium scale farmers in their farming.

  3. This Is Very True.A Good Example Is The So Called Winter Subsidy Fertilizers Which Came Some Time In June Without Coupons.Most Of It Ended Up Being Sold To Vendors By EPA Custodians At Higher Prices Instead Of K500/Bag.No Identity Was Required When Buying This Fertilizer So The Handwriten Registers Had Almost 60% Faked Names.Very Few Poor Farmers Benefited.

  5. My Comment On Fisp
    Its True This Is Not Benefiting Malawians. I Participated In Last Years Distribution In Mchinji North And I Discovered The Systen Is Not Abused By Both Supervisors And The People At Large .I Could Not Believe My Eyes Upon Receiving More 100 Coupons For Seed From Those Across The Border , Kasungu And Lilongwe .These Well Off Guys Who Bought Them Cheaply.The Same Applied To Fertilizers.Those Who Benefit Are Not Villagers.Mind Those Who Insist On Fisp Are The Same People Who Lure The Poor With Cash.Why Should My Govermment Subsidize Our Tax Money To A Forein Country .Its Totally Not Acceptable.
