Berias Unyolo is a co-founder of Mundawathu Gardens, one of the eleven entrepreneurs in the fifth cohort of the Growth Accelerator Entrepreneurship Challenge. Mundawathu Gardens is a seed multiplication and distribution company whose main focus is on multiplying the improved seedlings and distributing them to farmers with an aim of promoting a healthy livelihood.
Unyolo has expressed his gratitude for the Growth Accelerator Programme claiming it is the core factor that has promoted their brand and growth. Mundawathu Gardens is receiving financial support of $40,000.00 under the programme that is being used to construct a Modern greenhouse for seedlings propagation, purchase of a plot for fruits plantation, drilling of a borehole & installation of a solar water system, and the purchase of bamboo seeds and other improved grafting materials.
“With the financial support that we are receiving from the growth accelerator, we are able to increase our production from 100,000 to 450,000 seedlings, which will also play a huge part in increasing the revenue in our business.”
The Growth Accelerator Cohort five Entrepreneurship Challenge supports high-growth post-revenue entrepreneurs with co-financing of up to $40,000.00, mentorship, and technical assistance that helps them to grow and scale.
The program is run by #MHub in partnership with GrowthAfrica – Growth Frontiers, with support from UNDP Malawi, #KFW, and the #RoyalNorwegianEmbassy
