Mahmud Johnson

Founder & CEO, J-Palm Liberia

West Africa Fellow
Mahmud is Founder and CEO of J-Palm Liberia – an organization working to grow incomes for smallholder wild oil palm processors in rural Liberia. J-Palm builds mini oil-palm mills in rural communities that cut processing time by 90% and increase yields by 50%, resulting in more than 250% increase in smallholders’ income. J-Palm sustains this model by purchasing the previously wasted palm kernels from the farmers and processing them into natural skin and hair care products under its “Kernel Fresh” brand.
