The Zambia cooperative League says 140 mills have been built nationwide, thus creating more than 400 jobs for young people.
On Wednesday, James, general manager of the Zambia Federation of cooperatives, said that 50 more grinding mills were expected to be built by June, adding more jobs, and that corn prices would be more stable.
"Our goal is not only to stabilize corn prices, but also to provide jobs for young people," said James qilu. So far, 420 young men worked as operators in the mill. All areas will benefit from this project. The project aims to build a mill in each of the corn producing areas. The corn mill in the high producing area will produce surplus corn. Non corn producing areas will be built in rice and cassava plants.
