  Mozambique - Chimoio District
 
Chimoio area is located in Manica Province, in the west of Central Mozambique near the border with Zimbabwe. It has a population of approximately 400,000 people. Manica has a north-south expansion of 500 kilometers and an average west-east expansion of 120 kilometers.In the north it is bordered by the Zambezi river, and in the south by the Save River. Only a few small areas in the north and south are located below 500 meters. The landscape rises strongly towards the border of Zimbabwe and at its highest reaches a height of more than 2000 meters above sea level. Because of its altitude and relief, Manica Province has a relatively high rainfall.

Key economic activities are agriculture, mainly food crops and cash crops; commercial activities, which are dominated by the informal market, with entrepreneurs focused on consumables needed by individuals and households); the textile industry; fishing; tourism; animal husbandry; and timber exploitation. Chimoio area is also the home of the major community producer of bananas, located in Gondola.

Two initiatives are now being undertaken in the area with the support of the WK Kellogg Foundation. These include women oriented animal foment/restocking in Sussundenga.
