MAMF wants to facilitate a community of agricultural-based business cooperatives working resourcefully together, to create sustainable income and environmental stability.
MAMF’s model seeks to develop new ways of generating income for local women’s groups, including ethnic groups such as the Nomadic Fulani Women. The women trained in the MAMF Program take pride in their contribution to the cultivation of producing high-quality mushrooms, and the income it can generate for them and their families.
Due to the influence of Mbeng Adio Mushroom Program, mushroom farming is becoming a stable source of sustainable income for women farmers in Cameroon.
There is a demand for mushroom produce Regionally and Internationally. The low investment and production cost allows a substantial profit margin, which creates a sustainable income in the livelihood for these women and their families. The mushroom cultivation has a short turnover time, which allows the women to regularly harvest mushrooms on a weekly basis all year round, especially in areas with long rainy seasons. With the cultivation process not being labour intensive, the women are able to maintain their normal social lives within their community.
In the three main villages of Banjah, Nso and Mulion, where Mbeng Adio Program has been implemented, there is an emerging community of farmers that have the opportunity to be economically engaged. The Cooperatives can serve as financial institutions of businesses, assisting in local economic growth and development.
MAMF is an environmentally friendly agri-business that does not contribute to the degradation of the environment. All products and bi-products can be reused by local farmers; in many ways in their farming communities.
Mbeng Adio’s vision; is to be the largest mushroom producer on the continent of Africa.
