Title: Nigeria, IFAD-funded Value Chain Development Programme Phase II, November 2019
Description: Hussaini Jibriu manages 13 staff at the Lokogoma Cassava Processing Center where he supervises the various phases of cassava processing, as well as purchasing the raw product from local farmers, packaging and marketing high quality garri to markets as far away as Lagos and neighboring Niger. Animal feed is a significant by-product of cassava processing and adds additional income to the cooperative. Runoff from the dehumidification pressing is mixed with other organic waste to produce biogas, which is used to fuel the garri fryers. The IFAD/VCDP-supported project has supported the Lokogoma Cassava Processing Center to increase its income, boosting daily production from 100 kg to 1.8 tons. But, it has also helped the cooperative to greatly improve the quality of the processed cassava. Hussaini said, “What people have learned through the project they are able to apply to their personal lives. In the end, it is all about making money!”
