Impact: Commercializing dried meat in Senegal

Alimatou founded Carvi Food, the first dried meat marketing company in Senegal. Thanks to the trust of Senegalese consumers, Carvi Food is currently able to employ 10 people, half of whom are women.

Carvi Food has a production capacity of more than 3000 packages of different flavors per month and a database of hundreds of customers. The products are available in biodegradable packaging and are accessible through an online ordering platform, www.carvifood.com. They are also distributed through a network of 3 retail outlets that are currently expanding to improve accessibility to customers.
