Rwanda: How Potato Growers Will Benefit From New Distribution System

AllAfrica (July 20, 2015) For many years, Marie Therese Uzamukunda was always frustrated by price fluctuations for Irish potatoes, and she says she incurred losses every year, especially during the bumper season. “For generations, our soil has been suitable for potatoes more than any other crop, and this is the crop we exclusively grow. But since I started growing potatoes on a large scale, profits were not consistent and not because of poor yields, but because of an unstructured distribution system,” says Uzamukunda, who lives in Nyabihu District.
