Jula thus contributes to the increase of traceability in agri-chains. The company is working on increasing sales and quality of production and processing of agricultural products. It generates employment in Sierra Leone in two ways. First, the agricultural sector becomes more interesting as a source of income for young people, through increased and affordable products. In addition: Previously consultants from other countries where needed, Jula now offers local specialists.
