Posho Mill

A generous donor paid for and installed a mill used in the grinding of maize to make maize flour, a staple food for most rural Africans. Initially located in the suburbs of Nairobi, it is shortly to be moved to Western Kenya, in the heart of maize growing areas, where it will provide the basis of a viable social business grinding maize produced by local farmers. Quality maize flour is always sought after, free from weevils and other contaminants, and it brings a premium price.  The profit generated from the business will be ploughed back into funding charitable projects in rural communities.  The mill can be configured to provide animal feed for egg laying chickens, or cattle, helping to broaden out the income generating potential.
