MANA is an independent ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) supplier based in North Carolina. This long-term loan of $7,000,000 supports MANA to produce life-saving nutrition products at the lowest cost possible and drive global prices down. 

CIFF also provided a $6,250,000 grant to MANA which closed in September 2015.

Impact

MANA has become one of the lowest-priced suppliers of RUTF in the world, selling its Mother Administered Nutritive Aid at $45.00 per case in 2015.
