Big Issue Slide, Malawi, Sub-Saharan Africa



In one’s everyday life, money dictates one’s lifestyle. Whenever you have no money, chances of being taken as a useless person are high, respect doesn’t come on you at all. But finding money on daily basis, it is a toll order to most Malawians.

One of most profitable Agribusiness – Mushroom production

While the status quo of having tough rides to have money remains that way, smile is on Geoffrey Banda of Group Village Headman Chikhadwe in Traditional Authority Mkukula as he now finds an easy way to money making courtesy of RHEMA Institute for Development.

Most Hotels use this mushroom for mushroom soup

Banda now is able to raise about K3000 daily on average after selling his Mushroom which he is harvesting on his farm after being trained in mushroom farming by RHEMA Institute for Development.

Semu appreciating mushroom produced by Banda

Speaking to, Executive Director for RHEMA Institute for Development Innocent Semu says his organization decided to train train 15 lead farmers on mushroom production in an aim of giving some less privileged Malawians knowledge on how they can venture into Agribusiness which in turn can really make them self reliant.

“Our organization wants to work hard in helping Malawi government in creating One Million jobs and Agribusiness is one of those ways of creating jobs – surely with this initiative, we see more Malawians taking this room because results show that with much seriousness in mushroom production, one can be raising over K80 000 in a month.” Semu said.

He added that his organization will continue helping government with different viable interventions that will target a local Malawian in Agriculture, Education, Economic Empowerment and Water and Sanitation areas.

In his remarks, Banda hailed RHEMA for the training saying he has already started enjoying fruits of the training he attended in mushroom production.

“When I was approached to take part in this training, I was reluctant to join because I thought I could just waste my time with mushroom which ideally I knew it as something that we just find after first rains. After this training, I have totally changed the status of my family on economic point and I am able to buy basic needs and necessities as well as spending my kids to school using the money from the sales of my mushroom. I really thank RHEMA for this.

Geoffrey has however called all Malawians to take mushroom production as one of the profitable businesses which can surely help most of Malawians to change their families financial statuses to better
