How CASA and Paicho Pasal are working together

Project title: Promote, replicate and expand improved business model to attract further investments

The intervention strengthened Paicho’s business and helped its plans for expansion so that it can process more vegetables from more farmers by: (i) upgrading its produce collection and processing facilities; (ii) improving its marketing and sales; (iii) adopting technology into operations; and (iv) obtaining recognized quality standard certification

Paicho was part of the Investor Tourism initiative. This involved eight investors being taken to see all aspects of the business, with the trip culminating in a pitch to the investors for around £2m debt or equity finance
