To reach more youth Latia is currently developing an online training portal which will have both web and mobile phone capabilities. The portal will allow the large number of youth interested in Agribusiness to easily and conveniently acquire current information on production and markets at a click of a button. The high levels of mobile phone penetration and the rapidly growing access to internet in Kenya makes the online training portal a viable tool for reaching large numbers of young Agripreneurs without having to make huge investments in physical training infrastructure.
