EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA

The poultry business in Kigali is quite volatile with plenty of risks associated with diseases that wipe out an entire pen and discourage owners. This in turn affects supply of quality poultry products at a stable price for shops, restaurants and households. Tunga Poultry Model will address this issue by outsourcing production to many small farmers, hence minimizing risks of contamination and ensuring steady supply. Tunga will minimize startup costs for farmers by providing equipment and inputs to farmers free of charge, educating them on poultry farming and recuperating this investment through a revenue share model. Tunga Poultry will then buy back production from farmers at a competitive rate and sell it back on the major markets in Kigali at wholesale prices. Tunga Poultry's value proposition will be quality, affordability and reliability of supply

WHO BENEFITS?

Small scale farmers will benefit greatly from a steady income that allows to cover basic costs as well as reinvest in other farm activities. Through regular skill sessions they will also manage their production and income better which will transfer to other activities on their farms. Steady supply of poultry products on the market will also benefit businesses and individuals in and around Kigali. A steady market price and supply will make Tunga Poultry products preferred on the market.

WHERE WILL YOUR IDEA BE IMPLEMENTED?

Tunga Poultry production will be located in the Masaka area on the outskirts of Kigali, Rwanda.
