Our indigenous fruit I thought is abundant and valuable. Morula specifically was grossly underused for the fruit but the oil is used by large cosmetic companies. It takes approximately 300 tonnes of fruit to get 12 tonnes of oil. I thought to myself but what happens to all this fruit? I researched and found that this inability to use the fruit hampers the growth of the oil industry and that this is how I co-founded Maungo Craft in 2017.
Sustainable development goals
1. No PovertyEnd poverty in all its forms everywhere. Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality.
By 2030, ensure that all men and women, in particular the poor and the vulnerable, have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to basic services, ownership and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, natural resources, appropriate new technology and financial services, including microfinance
2. Zero HungerEnd hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. The food and agriculture sector offers key solutions for development, and is central for hunger and poverty eradication.
By 2030, double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, in particular women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment
