For one week, Hugues Bonkumu, Eric Muhindo, Sandrine Bussa, and Nazareth Ambua who represented the IYA Kinshasa group, learned about all the different activities and value chain operations of the Kalambo Agripreneurs.

The visit, 21–28 June, exposed the Kinshasa Agripreneurs to the production, processing, packaging, and marketing aspects of the Kalambo Agripreneurs’ routine.

“We have acquired the necessary skills to venture into different agricultural value chains. We can now start up production and processing of agricultural products using appropriate materials and marketing strategies so as to sustain a strong customer base,” reported the Kinshasa delegates.
