Yokateme Tii-kuzu is an agripreneur that aims to make food systems more sustainable and resilient globally. His passion got him to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in plant production, and a Master’s in plant genetics at the University of Pretoria, South Africa.
Eager to contribute to rural development, Yokateme returned to the Democratic Republic of Congo and founded MabeleAgric. The company aims to spread technology to make smallholders more profitable by producing cheap, sustainable, waste-based agricultural inputs, such as biofertilizers and animal feeds.
