Sarura Commodities links quality grain farmers with local off takers

Sector: Grain trading

In portfolio since: 2018

Location: Rwanda

Sarura is a grain trading company based in Kigali, Rwanda, that links small holder farmers with local and international off-takers, such as Africa Improved Foods and World Food Program. In Rwanda ~20% of the total grain produced is lost across the value chain due to post-harvest loss. Sarura has developed and integrated its supply chain infrastructure, from farm to market, to maintain grain quality and minimizes such losses. It also trains farmers on post-harvest loss management, to increase grain quality and farmer productivity.

DOB Equity’s investment will enable Sarura to strengthen its storage infrastructure, support its sourcing platform and scale up its operations in Rwanda’s niche premium grain market.

Through Sarura farmers have a guaranteed grain market, transparent and fair prices. Farmers trading with Sarura have nearly doubled their income, as noted in Acumen’s Impact Survey report.
