Ruramiso Mashumba


Ruramiso Mashumba is the CEO and founder of Mnandi Africa, an organization that helps rural women combat poverty and malnutrition by empowering and equipping them with skills and knowledge in agriculture.

In 2012, Ruramiso inherited a farm from her parents that was just a bush with no equipment. Today, the farm is mechanized.

Two years later, she was elected to become the national chairperson of the Zimbabwe Farmers’ Union, becoming the first woman in Zimbabwe to hold this position. Ruramiso has also been nominated for several agriculture awards and won the young farmer leader award.

Ruramiso holds a bachelor’s degree in agriculture business management from the University of West England and believes technology can transform agriculture.
