Founded in 2000, MULENDA AGRICULTURE AND COMMERCE (MULAGRICOM) markets onions, tomatoes, rice and other agricultural products from Bunkeya.

Purpose (s) of the partnership

Initiated in November 2014, it consists of a rice contract production model and the development of the distribution network. To this date, it has achieved the following results:

  • 100 Bunkeya rice farmers received technical assistance and credit inputs;

  • With this support, producers were able to almost triple the yield level (2.5t / ha);

  • Market access has been improved for small producers (including those who have not benefited from the contract production program) through the purchase of paddy by Mulagricom;

  • 50 t of locally produced high quality white rice has been marketed in Lubumbashi and Likasi.
