Afro Business World is planning to set up a recycling plant for PET-bottles and use the plastics to make new bottles. Somalia is largely lacking waste management systems and recycling and with the lack of potable tap water, large amount of bottles end up in landfills or in nature. By recycling these, Afro Business World wants to save natural resources, reduce litter, and reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses in the bottle making process. They are also creating a system where people can bring PET-bottles for recycling and get some cash in return; Afro Business World calls this a Win-Win-Situation.

Fishery
Granted project support
Module 1
Completed

Amiin Capital has seen that fish that is not sold at the end of the day at the market in Mogadishu, is thrown away because of the lack of cooling. They therefore want to offer short term cooling in freezing containers so that fishers and sellers can store fish still left in the evening and sell it the next day. This would save marine resources, lower gas costs for fishers, and reduce waste needed to be managed. Amiin Capital used the SSBP grant to conduct a feasibility study in Mogadishu and map competitors, potential customers and needed resources to start operations.
