Processes and markets fonio, a nutritious and climate resistant indigenous cereal.

Agriculture Technology and majored in Economics and extension. She further proceeded to do her postgraduate degree in MPhil Agricultural Economics.

The business has a proven holistic approach to social, economic and environmental problems. It is also addressing food insecurity and unsustainable land management, particularly for landless female farmers with no access to fertile lands.

Salma started Unique Quality Product Enterprise with 10 landless women and to date, the business has supported 500 farmers – 350 women and 150 men – to produce raw Fonio for the enterprise. Products are marketed under the DIM Fonio brand – ‘dim’ means eat in the local language.
