Providing a reliable buyer to 100,000 local farmers.
Locally operated agribusinesses create jobs and help farmers build sustainable livelihoods. These businesses are reliable, long-term buyers for local produce and offer farmers a buffer against the price fluctuations that are endemic to the market. The Clinton Hunter Development Initiative (CHDI) and Rwandan co-investors established Mount Meru Soyco Limited, a large soy processing business that will produce cooking oil. Soyco will supply the Rwandan market, create jobs, and expand export opportunities. The company is contracting with an estimated 100,000 local farmers to grow soybeans and is providing inputs to support those farmers. To further increase the availability of improved inputs for soya farmers, CHDI partnered with the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa, reaching 20,000 farmers across Rwanda over three years.
