Cassava Processing Machine Report Update

 

Project Summary

This Project will reduce poverty in Bukpe Community, Nigeria, by providing Cassava milling machines in the Bukpe community, Kwali Area Council, Abuja. The machine will be used to process harvested cassava. The machine will increase the production and sales of Garri which will increase the income of 120 farmers in the community, promote a culture of entrepreneurship using the street business school curriculum.

Challenge

Bukpe village has the highest number of cassava farmers. However, the economic impact of their small-scale farming is limited due to restricted access to resources to further process their cassava and more than half of the community live in poverty. Farmers interviewed revealed that at least 60% of cassava is lost in garri processing and they incur high post-harvest losses despite the intensive application of labor. Women farmers peel cassava manually and drying takes place on the floor in homes.

 

Progress:

We have gotten an approval letter to go ahead with the project from the local government. The community chief has also given us a space to install a Cassava processing Machine. 

The Entrepreneurship training and Machine procurement and Installation will begin in June 2021.
