Value Added G-nut Grinding

$600.00

G-nuts (peanuts) are a staple food product in Atiriu, but there is nowhere in the village to have roasted g-nuts ground into the highly desirable paste used in many local dishes. Ladies must grind by hand or travel 30 km to Rumbek to have their g-nuts processed. A local grinding mill will allow farmers to increase their income through value addition to the natural crop. G-nut paste can be sold in local markets or used for home consumption. As an added bonus, the mill will provide sustainable income to ACROSS’ Atiriu Agricultural Training Centre and will save women from walking to have their g-nuts processed.
