Umgibe Farming Organics is a carbon-saving, ecological, organic, income generating vegetable-growing system which provides a platform to market vegetables grown by grassroots farmers in South Africa. Umgibe supports local farming co-operatives by providing access to technology, training, and markets.

 Investing in Umgibe and supporting their vision for student farmers helps to break the cycle of poverty and provide a future for the upcoming generation.

By investing $800 in Umgibe an investor will essentially be purchasing one share of stock in the Network, which is equivalent to one farm.  At the end of the year the investor will receive a dividend of 5% of their investment or $40 on the $800.

Student farmers sign up for the program, are trained, and receive a household farm.  Umgibe provides continual support and contracts to fill orders with commercial customers.  At the end of the year the student household pays $800 to Umgibe, which is rent for the farm equipment and $40 of it is forwarded to investors.

 Umgibe keeps $80 of the $800 in escrow for students to use for higher learning or trade school if they complete the program.  The student farmers control any profits above this amount and feed their family at the same time.  Umgibe backstops and helps each farmer reach these goals.

Investors receive 5% of their investment yearly, pending the Umgibe Network’s ability to forward that dividend which is not dependent on each farmer.  The investor can reinvest their dividends, or have it remitted.  Dividends will be paid on the fiscal year. All investments made prior to the stated date are eligible.
