This investment has created an inventory of edible mushroom populations in Rwanda's forest ecosystems and identified species that are suitable for export and have the potential for cultivation. Today, mushrooms grown in Rwanda are exported across the region, improving the health and livelihoods of tens of thousands of farmers and customers.
