The rural-based small scale industries have a key impact on the rural economy; diversity in the economy, new knowledge generates new ideas, products and services, access to financial services, productive employment and increased per capita income for rural people, women in particular.
Diversity in economy
In villages smallholder farming is the main economic activity, engagement in small scale industries will trigger the capacity to adapt to change – engagement in off-farm cash generating activities.
The value chain approach is an opportunity that creates a competitive advantage and is an assurance of business success as it guarantees a ready-market for the produced/manufactured goods.
All our investments are located in poor rural areas where new buildings will be erected as solid long-term investments developing villages into commercial centers with concentration of economic, financial, socio-cultural and administrative services. The investment locations are expected to create productive employment and decent work for sustainable development
