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.
