Self Help Africa - Malawi Projects: Processing Mangoes Into Pulp for Export Project
Salima Trading Centre, Salima Town, Salima, Central,
Malawi Mangoes Ltd has secured funding from the African Enterprise Challenge Fund (AECF) for the Implementation of the Processing Mangoes into Pulp for Export Project. Part of the project seeks to work with smallholder farmers, community groups and local government agencies to support the production and supply of improved quality fruit to Malawi Mangoes for processing. The project aims to bring about a tangible and significant change in the economic status of smallholder farmers by supporting the production of mango fruit in the region.
SHA is leading in the implementation of the smallholder farmer component of the project, which seeks to contribute towards agricultural commercialization. The project will increase smallholder productivity and household income through value addition and offer better market access. Smallholder farmers will be organised into farmer groups that enable them trade collectively and therefore competitively in the mango value chains. The project will also broaden participation of smallholder farmers in Salima in the mango value chain through production of improved mangoes, the provision of training and market access.
