Make the most out of your passion fruit
Monday, 22 August 2016
When Grace Cheptoo established a passion fruit farm on the advice of a friend, she had no idea she was on her way to becoming the top farmer in the region.It is a warm Thursday afternoon when Seeds of Gold arrives at Grace  Cheptoo’s farm at Ng’oina Road area in Bureti Constituency.
We find the mother of two humming to some music while harvesting passion fruits.
We visited the farm to find the root of her love for passion fruit farming, her story having travelled far and reached us.Grace, 60, established the fruit farm on her 0.2 acre land on the advice of a friend in March 2010, investing Sh64,000 into the venture. She says that it was without doubt one of the best decisions she ever took as it has earned her good returns through export to Uganda, Guatemala and Belgium. On a good month, Grace, harvests 480 kilos of passion fruit, making Sh33,600.
“When I started this project, it was meant to give me something to do part time but it has becoming more profitable than any other farming activity I have done including tea and pineapple growing,” she says.

 Hello Peter,

I take this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for organizing, coordinating the Kinshasa International Trade Fair by linking us with key importers from DRC. It was very kind of you to accompany us during those visits, and greatly gained a lot from your French speaking skills. This being the first time that we participated in the FIKIN, we are encouraged by Export Promotion Council real commitment to improving exports within the region.

 Once again, thank you for an excellent job done during the exhibition, and we look forward to working together in the future and grow our exports.

 Regards, Tom (New KCC)
