I am representing ACLA HONEY ENTERPRISES LTD, we are dealing with trading of ware potatoes from Njombe and retailing in Dar es salaam local market (Mabibo).
We have signed purchasing agreement with Njombe Agricultural Development Organization (NADO) for purchasing potatoes produced by the groups of small holders farmers under their organization.
We have already done business with LUSITU,we have not yet sign an agreement with them.
In the coming potato season we are expecting to start trading with small holder farmers located in Rungwe district.
Our vision is to invest in a processing unit/cold storage unit to reduce post harvest loss in the potato value chain.
We are also planning to invest in commercial farming of Avocado,we are in the earlier stage of sourcing the land.
Partnering with SAGCOT will help us to realize our vision.

Dear Clemence, thank you for your correspondence and sharing the important work you do. Our communication department has sent you an email on how to go about the process of becoming a SAGCOT Partner.
Hereby representing ESSAMY (T) LTD, a group of entrepreneurs who partnered to provide solutions on market and training facilities for Kilombero small and medium farmers. Since 2016 we have been working with Mchombe, Mdibule and Mpande farmers (paddy and rice) to providing best market prices. Our mission is to becoming the best catalyst in production and sales for the market we save. however, storage warehouses and best milling plants are challenges for them that force to sell their product soon as they harvest, that which, we as ESSAMY have decided to construct and install the milling plants, providing service throughout year and fortunately the area we have already, and raising fund for the project.
Our vision to do with in the rice sector is to add value for rice products and bring about market connectivity in the area by having true investment of machines and mechanization system, which basically the initial process have started.
by partnering with SAGCOT will give us more confidence and more technical acquisition which will be transferred the same to our key holders. so asking you to accept and realize our vision.
Dear James, thank you for sharing your vision and the great work you are doing.

However, our sister organisation in the SAGCOT Initiative, the SAGCOT Catalytic Trust fund does offer funding opportunities. The window has just closed for the first round application for the Matching Grant Fund, but there will be a second round of applications open in February 2018.
