Passionate about agriculture, Yokateme Tii-kuzu. (MSc, Genetics) believes that he was born to feed humanity. He 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 DRC and founded MabeleAgric. The company aims to develop a circular production system through vegetables and poultry production. Vegetables are produced under food forest that combines agroforestry and agroecology. And poultry is fed on organic waste. Yokateme hopes to create a production model that smallholders can emulate for improved profitability.
