Gender Makes Business Sense!

Second Gender Coaching Trajectory starts with Musika

On March 25th and 26th in Siavonga, AgriProFocus kicked off the second Gender Coaching Trajectory with Musika. The participants are agribusinesses including Syngenta, Munzuma, Vet 24, ATS Agrochemicals, and Keegy. The companies see an opportunity to have gender inclusive business strategies to improve the growth of their business and corporate social responsibility.

The coach introduced tools that will support the businesses to strengthen their knowledge and ability to see their value chain from a gender perspective. The businesses worked on value chain analysis from a gender perspective; analysed different cases that showed different strategies to mainstream gender, and finally each business developed their own action plan.

The workshop was a great success, and the members shared a lot of new insights and are now ready to implement the tools in practice.

I would like to thank the participants and thank Mus

Inclusiveness pays back; business arguments for gender and youth inclusive value chain development

By Angelica Senders, network facilitator gender in value chains AgriProFocus

Contribution to the on- line consultation ‘Promoting inclusiveness in the Dutch policy agenda on trade and international cooperation, on Include knowledge platform.

Inclusive development is not only in the benefit of those previously excluded, but also makes optimal use of capacities of a broader range of people. There are serious business arguments for including women and youth in economic development. Dutch policy should promote inclusion of women and youth in business partnerships by actively supporting systematization and dissemination of experiences illustrating the business case for inclusiveness.

This has been proven in the coffee sector where the inclusion of women has had positive results.

Women form the majority of the world’s estimated 25 million coffee farmers, yet coffee is seen

Celebrating Horticulture Program Experiences

AgriProFocus Kenya in collaboration with Solidaridad, HIVOS and SNV brought together the Horticulture sector stakeholders to a dissemination forum on the Horticulture and Food Security Program (HFSP) on the 19th February 2015 at the Jacaranda Hotel, Nairobi.

HFSP was a 3 year program implemented by Solidaridad (Lead), SNV and Hivos. The program was funded by The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. AgriProFocus took the lead in the knowledge management component of the program. The program took the model of PPP and involved various private sector companies and farmer groups.

The aim of the dissemination forum was to share experiences, successes and challenges of the HFSP program. AgriProFocus on behalf of the program had compiled publications as well as audio visual materials documenting experiences within the program. The materials were unveiled by the Ambassador Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Kenya H.E Joost Reinjtes. &nb

New partnerships to improve the "Agri-Finance" sector

The majority of the Rwandan population shares the same profession: farming. Most of these farmers lack access to financial services that could help them to develop their profession, buy the seeds, fertilizers, adopt new technologies, etc. This was the key concern of the recent "High Level Consultation Meeting on Access to Agricultural Finance" that took place at Top Tower Hotel on Friday, 13rd February 2015.

The meeting brought together 23 people mainly from financial institutions but also from NGOs and Government institutions. These people discussed together what can be achieved through the AgriProFocus network that could contribute to more access to finance by farmers while achieving each organization’s goals.

Yes Agriculture is often perceived as much riskier than other sectors, particularly by financial institutions but in the meeting it was proven that sometimes these financial institutions lack expertise on agriculture.

Dear all,

As we are preparing our annual report of what the AgriProFocus network achieved last year we are looking add the enormous amount of positive feedback and recommendations we received on our appreciation and results survey.

For the third year in a row a growing number has shared their view and how they have benefitted (or not). Over 1600 respondents provided feedback (twice the number of the previous year).

Thanks to all who have taken the time to fill out the survey. With between 5 and 10 minutes to do the survey this is between 15 and 30 hours of your time!


Find attached a small resume of the data we collected. Our main conclusions are:

- Your continued strong response rate on survey shows strong commitment to the AgriProFocus network.

Dutch breweries investing in Ethiopia

http://www.npo.nl/nieuwsuur/31-01-2015/VPWON_1235675 

The Dutch news programme ‘Nieuwsuur’ of Saturday 31st January included an item on Dutch breweries’ investments in Ethiopia. (most text in Dutch, though some English and Amharic)

"The project is exactly what the Dutch government wants: combining trade and aid” says one interviewee.


The programme shows the new Ethiopian breweries of Heineken and Bavaria. Ethiopia is a grow market for beer; the two companies have the ambition to contribute to a higher beer consumption per capita. Different stakeholders are interviewed: representatives of the two companies, a representative of ICCO, a representative of the Dutch Embassy (Mr Hans van de Heuvel). The Embassy expects the investments to contribute to food security, generating income for farmers. 

 In my opinion, the programme could have been more informative if it had addressed challenging issues such as whether barley produc

Nicole Metz See also an interesting blog (in Dutch only) about the practice of the Dutch breweries in several African countries to source locally. The author says that other private sector actors should follow the example of the breweries, purchasing more produce locally, as this contributes to more and better opportunities for local farmers. http://www.viceversaonline.nl/2015/02/voedingsindustrie-kan-voorbeeld-nemen-aan-bierbrouwers/

Improving Agricultural Finance in Africa:

In June 2011, during the conference organized by Making Finance Work Africa (MFW4A) Principles were established and agreement was reached on a common set of policy principles to improve agricultural finance in Africa. One of the conference outcomes is the synthesis report “Agricultural Finance Policy Coordination in Africa – lessons from Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Morocco and Zambia”. The outcomes of the five country case‑studies work, undertaken for the  Agricultural Finance Stakeholder Working Group (AFSWG), will enable country-level stakeholders to take well-informed decisions and action, to strengthen policy and its coordination through either existing or new agricultural finance policy coordinating bodies, and to provide the relevant background and orientation to the AFSWG for the advocacy/implementation phase envisaged in its scope of work.  Read the full report here.
