Avifarm is a traditional egg production farm, incorporated in 2004 in Bamako. BIO agreed to finance the extension and modernization to European standards of the chicken farm. The investment lead to an additional capacity of 25,000 egg laying chickens, while the capacity of the existing (traditional) premises was 28,000 birds.

Moreover, BIO has helped the Sponsors in improving the financial structure of the project.

Lastly, BIO has requested that the external auditor contracted by the Company would be involved more regularly to increase and improve the reporting on the financial statements.

BIO subsidized a technical assistance project for Avifarm in 2008, find out more here.
