Peter Ngunjiri Talks About Worldwide Farmers Exchange’s Competitive Advantage
Peter Ngunjiri heard about WFE via word of mouth from a former trainee. He joined the program to further his goals of becoming a professional farmer and improving agricultural practices in his native Kenya.
During his WFE internship, Peter trained at a vegetable farm in Kula, Maui with the Ito family. Specifically, Peter learned vegetable production for the wholesale market with the Ito family to produce a diversity of vegetables, from Maui Sweet Onions to various leafy green crops.
Peter says that the practical work experience he obtained while in the U.S. gave him a competitive advantage over others in the agricultural sector in Kenya. Ultimately, this edge helped him secure a position as controller at Oserian Flower Farm in Kenya, where he currently works.
His long-term goals include owning his own farm and helping to meet the Kenyan demand for produce.
