A youth group that is being supported under the KMDF-ACBF Youth Empowerment Project has started reaping from their business idea. Upper Bugongi Youth Group has seen success from their mushroom project. Their resent harvest comes at the time when mushrooms are on a high demand within the local markets and this has led to the price surging in the recent months.

The youth group opted to grow Oyster mushrooms which are known to be highly nutritious and grow at a very fast rate when grown under favorable conditions. The group started growing the mushrooms on 29th August 2017 and in one month they have started reaping big.
