International Agricultural group, Stoller has joined forces with the Joyce Banda International Foundation (JBIF) in assisting small, subsistence farmers all over the African Continent.

The historical agreement was signed on 10 November 2014 in Johannesburg between Craig Whitlock , Director of Stoller Africa and Joyce Banda, Founder of the Foundation and former president of Malawi.

The five year initiative will start immediately and will be rolled out in ten Sub-Saharan African Countries including Zambia, Malawi, South Africa, Kenya and Mozambique.

The objective of the joint venture is to provide agricultural education to woman and children, access to Stoller’s advance crop health technology that will enable these local growers to produce higher yields resulting in income generating activities

Banda is a champion for the rights of woman, children, the disabled and other marginalised groups.

Her foundation’s motto is: “Putting money in the pockets of the poor”. It is based in Washington, USA and has already reached 400 000 woman with its empowerment programmes and started several schools and orphan care centres in Malawi.

The JBIF has launched its Village Transformation Initiative a few years ago with the main focus on agricultural programs to help small farmers with input materials such as seeds and fertilizers as well as training. This programme will benefit greatly from the newly forged partnership with Stoller.

“It is my conviction that this partnership would impact Africa, model sustainability and contribute to food security on the continent,” said Banda after signing the agreement.

The Stoller Group, based in Houston, Texas has opened its first African office in Mbombela, South Africa in March this year. Its production facility in the city will also be operational soon.

Stoller is active in 70 countries with research, development and distribution of unique products for plant performance meant to increase yield quality and sizing through balanced plant nutrition.

The company also carries a conventional, yet advanced line of fertilizers and micronutrients.

    Umbulidi ndimatenda we are not talking about cashgate here its about the precious work this madam is doing eish. Your petera has failed us already in six month in the history of malawi it’s strange robbers storming the house of vice president and cabinet minister so think about ordinary people who has no security will they stand from this chaos. Sometimes you need to appreciate the works of others.

  6. arius says:

  8. aka says:

    Problem with malawians is they lack chosen idea, chosen a leader is not by pity… When ever you make wrong choices you will pay for it i think this is paying time… 2019 Malawians have to think very well before chosen.

  9. KALOWERE says:

    Jealous yayi, Amayi ndi ulendo. Odi uko!!!!!!!!

  10. CONCERNED PEEPEE says:

    Nyasatimes! JB is now private citizen and whatever she is doing is to the interest of herself and she is not a Presidential material any more bring on sum gud news. There are ex presidents outside there and are not publicised as u do. They do the charitable works and are quite. Why her? She is still travelling around as usual. Does have time for building up tbe party for 2019? So many things she has on her plate and no wonder she failed the nation and now its the party. ” DONT CALL ME I WILL CALL YOU” said Madiba.

    1. zakakaliya mulopwiya says:

  23. hotlips says:

    Amayi, from there are you coming home or going to visit TB Joshua. By the way, where are you getting the money to support you abroad for 3 months now, after having slashed your salary in Malawi? You need to declare your assets fro scrutity.

  24. Jabulosi says:

    Since June 2014, this country has been leaderless there is No Direction as to which way we are heading to.Things are Falling apart each passing Day. FISP,FUEL, ROBBERIES, FIRINGS, STRIKES, PRICES, RATES almost everything in disarray!!!!!!!! WHICH WAY BWANA??????

  25. Here we go again says:

    Lets put politics aside, She has all it take to be a good leader, by taking the interests of an ordanary person at heart not only in Malawi but the whole africa, I love this woman she has a human heart not this beast by the name of Apa Pali Mavuto (APM). She is blessed with leadership and vision may the good Lord guid and continue blessing her.

    2. Namu says:

      Inu mukuchitapo chani, ngakhale kubanja komanso kumudzi kwanu? Tafotokozani. Nsanje n’zoipa simudzapita nazo patali. Ambuye akuthandizeni mukuoneka kuti muli ndi khungu la mumtima. JB is not doing this for herself and her own family. The article says that it’s for so many countries including your own village people. Stop being wicked. Appreciate where necessary.

  27. boma says:

    Izi ndi zomwe mumatha – NGO work. Koma do not bore us with your private news. U Presindent unakukanikani ndipo munausiya. You are now a private citizen. mUkamapanga phokoso tidzikutengetsanibenso mu mapepala.

    1. nyekhulira says:

      Iwe boma amako nde anapanga chiyani?

  28. DON says:

    AMAYI YOU ARE JUST DOING GREAT, LOVE U MAMA JB

  29. Poor Malawi says:

    May God bless you mum as you endeavor to uplift and move the marginalized population groups (women) out of poverty and vulnerability in Africa.

  30. PhoenixArise says:

    proud of how she has chosen to keep stepping to the beat of her own drum. Good job JB. Osati utsiru wajijirijijiri mu Malawi only as if the sun rises and sets in Malawi basi. JB is a global citizen.

  31. Namacherenga says:

    Congratulations JB, that is what you are good at: Sector Projects. Running Government, no, no, and no!

  32. my right to speak! says:

    Who cares!

  33. Mphangala says:

  34. Mphwache wa Bingu says:

    Inu a Stoller mukusowa zochita. Why associate with this clueless woman? This will not benefit even a single farmer in Afrrica

    1. chiduma says:

      Inu Mulungu azakulangani nthawi zina kumavomereza munthu akamachita chabwino osati kumangonyoza zonse, kodi a Peter anuwa ndiye akutanipo pamalawi pano apart from being a disgrace to the nation?Bolanso JB zinthu zimayendanso kusiyana ndi a professor anuwa. Mavuto alipo pa Malawi osakambidwa poti ubwino wake tikulirira limodzi ndi inu nomwe chifukwa mafuta akwerera tonse, inflation, ndi mavuto onse osanenedwa aja

  35. Chrispine Salanje says:

    Thats JB I know shame to those who thought JB is useless,here she is now helping people all over the world.All the best mama

  36. Wolemekezeka says:

    What is it that internationals see in JB that we Malawians fail to see. Malawians better wake up. This woman cannot be stopped. You can’t take away what she has. Let’s just work with her for the betterment of our people

    1. Alfred Minjo says:

      Iyaaaaaaaa! which people nawenso? Zankutu!!!!

  37. kadamanja says:

    Amayi, continue your good work. The world knows you better than Malawi.

  38. Alungwana says:

    If I were Joyce Banda I would never desire to rule Malawi again because JB is now doing more than what a Malawi president can do. Best wishes JB.

  39. Wise says:

    Amazing

  40. kanundu says:

    Bola osawabela azunguwo. Six month 24 billion x one year 48 billion x five years zingati ndiye musova. Ndiye asabetsenso zaenizo.

  41. Cashgate 1 says:

    I would encourage her to include men, not only focusing on women. In development initiatives there is a move from Women in Development to Gender in Development and there are many reasons for this shift. The danger is if men are left out, they will be the very same that may contribute to failure of this initiative. Rather bring them on board to support women and Children in this initiatives. The project looks to be good, just make it success.

  42. o says:

    Never heard of Stoller. Isn’t this just another no entity?

  43. BigMan says:

    Abiti Mtila, come back home and face questioning from the ACB please over cashgate. How long must we wait for you to enter one of the holding cells? Don’t worry, you will be treated just like any innocent until proven guilty person by the ACB and the courts. If the friends that you are trying to make abroad to support you ask why you are being “harrassed”, we will explain to them where necessary. Come home Madam, we are tired of waiting.

  44. nkunthamasese says:

    Malawi has lost a great leader. Tidya u proffessor chaka chino. matama hehedeeeeeeee

  45. Matrakitara says:

    Amama, just buy few second hand tractors from your friends in Texas and the job will be done here at home. Nothing can be done by using the hoes. Enough is enough with paper work and pictures with these uzungu !!!!!!

  46. the abductor says:

    Please Madam, remember Malawi whilst serving the rest of the African countries. We adore you mama and may the arlmighty God bless you with long life whilst your are serving the vunerables across africa. Malawi imakuchepelerani and you may now believe me that God has always a way of breaking through. There you are now and it is likely that the responsibilities you are shouldering now are much way beyond than those you had while being a brief president of Nyasa Malawi. Ife kuno munatisiyiila mavuto osayamba koma asova poti anaziyamba okha. Bye for now mamaaaaa.

  47. Isaac chagwa mzuzu says:

    The most important thing is to hear that the agreement will benefit poor Malawians and that pleases even God.

  48. Kadakwiza says:

    This woman called Mayi Joyce Banda is an ICON. Malawians regret now. Go Joyce Banda go. Show the world that you hate poverty. .

  49. Abk says:

    koma abwerera kumudzi anabandawa? three months have gone akungozungulira mmakomo mwaeni, kumudzi kuno bambo ken msonda atopa ndikuyendetsa chipani cha pp.

  50. Achakulungwa says:

    I think madam your excellency,you are blessed with that and nobody can take it away from you,ndalezi pumani look how many lives you can save with your precious time? And how many lives you have cost with your political career?Takunyadilani mayi wathu,keep it up,drop yor intentions to run for elections in 2019.

    Tibweretsereni fertilizer yo mwamsanga kuno Kwanu bola osatsakaniza ndi mchenga.

  55. Mphwiyo says:

    We have always said that this is what suits her. She should leave the rest to others. U president ndi ntchito zachifundo are miles apart

  56. Rodriguas Latata says:

    Love or loath her, she is rolling. Africa not only Malawi.

    1. Mbuya says:

      Let us watch and see!!!!

    2. charles says:

      loathe

    3. tsetsefly says:

      I agree and wish if Peter, the president, was also as connected as JB. To JB, please you are still a Malawian and my hope is that the lions share of that project will be channelled to Malawi. I do not have to emphasize that the future for Malawi under the wise and dynamic (my foot) leadership of His Excellence Proffesor looks less promising.
