Challenge: In Kuru, Jos, the absence of cold storage threatened agricultural viability, a situation emblematic of challenges faced by Nigerian farmers against a backdrop of global food security concerns.

Action: A $100,000 grant from USADF and General Electric in 2013, supplemented by DDI’s expertise, funded an 8KW solar-powered cooling facility, directly addressing post-harvest losses.

Result: The facility now serves 117 farmers, demonstrating the power of sustainable technology in bolstering Nigeria’s agricultural sector.
