Busia sits on potentially productive land and is strategically located as a major trade hub in the region out of the farming and non farming activities of its people.
Ironically though, Busia has long been associated with statistics of soaring poverty levels. The collective war against poverty is on, and PALWECO leads the charge through interventions such as the rolling out of flagship projects in horticulture, small stock, high value trees and irrigation, besides supporting contract farming and agribusiness to attain economic and social stability.
It facilitates partnerships with relevant stakeholders to harness the synergy needed to turn Busia from an importer to an exporter. The partnerships present unique investment opportunities in transport, supply of animal feeds and farm inputs, agro-processing and banking for the mutual benefit of Busia residents, the investor community and neighboring markets in Kenya, Uganda and beyond.
