Mr. Muhammed El Akkary is one of the core founders of the farmers union in Egypt. He started his farming business after he got a small piece of arable land in his home village in upper Egypt. During his very first days in farming, he was challenged and shocked by the dire situation and suffering of most farmers due to the lack and insufficiency of basic agricultural needs, the primitiveness of farming methods and techniques implemented and the ineffective marketing policy of the crops and products. He was so concerned about the devastating situation of the farmers and their livelihoods that in 2011 he established the union with other concerned farmers.

He has worked hard and diligently from day one to improve the dire situation of all Egyptian farmers that his efforts yielded fruition. He climbed the ladder until his efforts were finally crowned by electing him as head of the Union.
