Uganda alone on average spends $100,000,000 importing rice from Pakistan monthly, this is without counting other countries in Africa that import more rice; Nigeria ($2.6billion annually). 200 plus acres of Land are favorable for agriculture, located in Eastern Uganda, Tororo (Near Kenya) thus suitable to transport rice to both Kenya and Uganda markets. Technology and finance are the greatest challenge.
