With the support that these farmers have been receiving from their respective governments alongside its stakeholders to solve these problems, farmers still experience more challenges because they have no voice in the interventions designed to solve their problems. Farmer organizations are institutions that gives farmers a fair voice to negotiate for any engagement targeting them.
