  • Description

    Description

    My name is Brenda 28 years old from Masindi District in Uganda. Am passionate about farming and this led me to startup a family business majoring in valve addition of crops like pumpkins, soybean and millet and maize.
    we are involved in the growing,processing and marketing for purposes of promoting better healthcare, household incomes improvement and job creation for youth economic self reliance.

    we intend to promote better health care,house hold income enhancement and job opportunities for youth through facilitating increased production and productivity of our valve chain crops coupled with aggressive marketing strategy to reach out the end users especially now when we have land and available labor.

    On this note carried from our constraints assessment in terms of low capacity of production due to a number of factors, lack of the necessary machinery(electrical automated grinding machines),skills gap in-terms of formulas for bye products, marketing both on line and off line approaches, we seek volunteer support based on their core areas of expertise.
