MULAGRICOM

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.
