Mavuno Harvest works with small farming cooperatives to create supply chains to bring delicious, organic dried fruit from rural sub-Saharan Africa to the American consumer. We provide markets for these farmers and their products, thus increasing incomes, securing existing jobs and even creating new ones.
Typically, farmers take their fresh fruit to local markets but only sell up to 30% of their harvest. The rest goes unsold and rots.
Drying fruit is a simple preservation technique which means no fruit is wasted and the farmers sell 100% of their harvest.
With the money he earned from last years harvest, Herbert was able to buy an additional acre where he planted 440 more papaya trees, effectively doubling his income. Having a steady market has allowed Herbert to see his papayas as an asset, and his farm as a business. He's investing his profits back into his business. Papaya only takes 9-12 months to mature so he'll be realizing the income from these additional papayas as early as this year.
