Over 15 Years of Experience

We started from scratch so you don’t have to!

Barqo Dhereg has come a long way from its humble beginings, with a single farm and hand dug well next to a dry seasonal river.

In those early years we have aqcuired practical knowledge on the ground, applied evidence based know how and carefully built a network of local and international contacts.

 

Happy Customers & Buyers

Right from the beginging Ahmed and the Barqo Dhereg team were very professional.

For me it was all about value rather than just the service. the knowledge and subject matter expertise.

I Ahmed knew for quite some time. We lost touch somehow over the years.

I already trusted in his knowledge and know-how, and I knew that if I ever went into agriculture which I felt passionate about for sometime now. Of course Ahmed and Barqo Dhereg were my go to Person.

Unsurprisingly my expectations did not fail me.  Thank you Ahmed!

I needed a water source for my farm, I approached a self professed  water drilling company. After spending money,time and energy and they failed and I was left in a bad situation.

I heard about Ahmed's reputation from a friend who knew him and other people. I decided to approach him. What can I say, the rest was history!
