Thu, 05 Nov 2020

Inspired by the movie ‘One Dollar A Day,’ 3rd year International Business Student at Kemmy Business School in UL, Jack O’Connor says that he was struck “to the core” when he began to understand and research the plight of farmers in sub-Saharan Africa. ‘Moya Nua’ takes its name from a combination of the word 'Moyo', meaning life in the Malawian language of Chichewa, and 'Nua', meaning new in Irish Gaelic. Moya Nua is the producer of agricultural seeding planters that utilise simplified agricultural technologies that are both ergonomic and environmentally friendly for small holder farmers - one of the poorest demographics in the world.
