Rwanda Maize Supply Chain Project
International Finance Corporation (IFC) and Heineken created the Rwanda Maize Supply Chain (RMSC) project to improve the quality and quantity of maize to enable the Rwandan national brewery to source maize from local growers. In January 2016, ACDI/VOCA was awarded a two-year contract to improve management capacity of twenty selected maize cooperatives in Rwamagana and Kayonza Districts. It is envisioned that through training and on-site technical assistance, cooperatives will increase sales through enhanced professionalization, improve contract adherence, and better forecast production volumes and quality.
