Bukavu Congo 2018
Follow-up 2018






Name project:    Processing of agricultural products mays, soya, sorgo and
                            manioc – Mill and unpeel machine

Location:             Fomulac Katana/Bukavu in RD Congo (because of constant
                           electricity and agricultural area)

Project leadtime: 12 months

Requestor:          Jean-Jacques Chishibanji / ANUPF asbl

Description of the project:

The Anupf association supports psychiatric patients and their families with the objective to improve life circumstances for the most vulnerables and to help them in their care and nutrition. To reach this objective we have 2 activities: chicken farming and cultivation of corn, beans and manioc. These 2 activities are having good results but we’re facing some new challenges: the request for helping the patients increases, the purchase of corn for the chickens, … To tackle this we were thinking about processing of agricultural products. A mill and unpeeling machine will allow us to transform our own products but also these from the farmers in the neighbourhood which generates a small income and an increase of the value of their products. We will be able to sell flour and to buy food for the most vulnerables. We believe we will increase our independency by these activities and we will be able to help more persons. The machines will be located at the site of Fomulac Katana as this is constantly electricity.


- Processing of corn, sorgo, soya and manioc to flour
- Produce chicken feed on large scale and increase the productivity of the chickens (more eggs and chicks)
- Auto-financing becomes stable and continuous
- The increase the value of agricultural products in our area
- Produce more agricultural products to be able to increase the number of beneficiaries
- Create employment at the mill

Follow-up of the project

Date:              December 3rd 2018
Name project: Project 91: Bukavu Mill and unpeel machine

General status:

The project is started, the installation phase is ongoing. The ordering of the mill and unpeel machine was done and we received the complete mill (see pictures and invoices). The lease contract us signed with the responsible of the rooms where the machines will be installed. So instead of building a shelter we have paid rent (see lease contract). We also ordered a specific sewing machine to close the jute bags.

We report a delay in the project progress as the technician became ill. The supplier promised to deliver the 2nd machine within 10 days starting from 1.12.’18. We therefor expect to complete the installation between December 10th and 15th and can start up on December 16th.

Progress since last status report:

No progress as we’re in installation phase.

Financial status:

From the budget of 5990US$ (5165€) 1190$ is remaining. 450$ will be used for supplies, 500$ for the hours of the installation, 140$ for a scale and 100$ for the transport.


Currently no problems
