From interaction with farmers in the typical villages where transportation is rare, ninety-five percent of the population has their occupation to be farming. Food loss after harvest tends to be a major issue as a result of the unavailability of transport to transfer the harvested crops. Most of the crops produced gets perished a few days after they have been harvested, causing farmers a great loss. This has significantly reduced the farmers’ standard of living and that of their consumers. This is because a very small quantity of the harvested crops gets to the markets and do not meet the high demand by consumers, making the price of products in the market skyrocket high. From interaction with some farmers, they are willing to farm in large quantity to meet the market demand, that is if there is a ready market for the crops.
