A collective commitment to the farming community: Mevi Enterprise inaugurated


BY | Friday, 28 June, 2024

Mevi Enterprise, a marketing shed for local farmers to sell their local products and agricultural tools was inaugurated today at T-Model village in Kohima on June 28.  The shed was inaugurated by Neibodzelie Solo, KMC councillor Ward 11.

Considering the shed as a pioneering venture in Kohima dedicated to farming products and farmers’ produce, Solo viewed that the inauguration was not just the opening of a store but the ushering in a new era of support for the agricultural community.

“Mevi Enterprise represents more than just a retail outlet. It embodies our collective commitment to the farming community, starting with the farmers of Jotsoma. This is an age where many are drawn away from agriculture, it is truly inspiring to see individuals stepping forward to bridge the gap between our farmers and the market,” said the Councillor acknowledging the proprietors of Mevi Enterprise for their vision and initiative.

Solo shared optimism that the store will serve as a crucial market linkage, addressing one of the most significant challenges farmers face – finding reliable outlets for their produce.

“What makes this venture even more significant is its alignment with the MOVCDNER (Mission Organic Value Chain Development for North East Region), program, a vital initiative from the Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India. This program, implemented by our Department of Agriculture through The Green Caravan, is instrumental in promoting organic farming. It provides our farmers with training, tools, assistance in establishing companies, and support for organic certification,” stated Solo.

Mevi Enterprise’s commitment to work with farmers under this program, according to Solo, is a step towards a more sustainable and prosperous agricultural future. Lauding the self-funded initiative, Solo said, “Commitment to community development is rare and should be celebrated.”

He also exuded optimism that Mevi Enterprise will inspire others to undertake similar ventures, creating a network of support for our farmers across Nagaland. “Today, they are sowing seeds of change, opening doors of opportunity for our farmers and paving the way for a stronger production economy in agriculture. This is a step towards ensuring that farming remains a viable and attractive profession for generations to come,” expressed Solo.

Mevi Enterprise has welcomed local farmers to sell their products under the guidance of the two proprietors Azono Senotsu and Khrielesieno Nakhro.
