New markets for shea nut harvesters in Mali

In Mali, collecting nuts of the native shea tree is popular among female farmers. After having eaten the sweet flesh, they sell the nuts directly, or they process them and sell shea butter and oil for food production and cosmetics. To strengthen this women-led sector, ICCO, USAID-Mali and two shea-oil companies supported more than 12,000 women harvesters by facilitating the certification of their shea products and by linking them to new markets.

Altogether, 25 women-led cooperatives received training to improve harvesting, boiling, drying, storing and packaging. They also enhanced their entrepreneurial and marketing skills. ‘They now produce better quality butter and oil, and know how to negotiate, giving them a better price’, says Jaap ’t Gilde from ICCO. The trained women cooperatives obtained long term contracts from the shea oil companies (SOATAF and Olvea), together with a 200 per cent increase in the shea price per kilo.

Après avoir mangé la chair sucrée, ils vendent les noix directement, ou ils les traitent et vendent du beurre de karité et de l'huile pour la production alimentaire et les cosmétiques. Pour renforcer ce secteur dirigé par des femmes, ICCO, USAID-Mali et deux compagnies de karité ont soutenu plus de 12 000 femmes récolteuses en facilitant la certification de leurs produits de karité et en les reliant à de nouveaux marchés.Au total, 25 coopératives dirigées par des femmes ont reçu une formation pour améliorer la récolte, l'ébullition, le séchage, le stockage et l'emballage. Ils ont également amélioré leurs compétences entrepreneuriales et marketing. «Ils produisent maintenant du beurre  de meilleure qualité et savent négocier, en leur donnant un meilleur prix», explique Jaap 't Gilde d'ICCO.

Six ways to include gender in your work

(Article from the Gender Magazine 'Making Gender Work: Cultivating Diversity')

These tips will enable you to seriously address gender in your programme. Women will benefit, and even better, you will discover that paying attention to gender will increase the success of your programme. 

1. Be explicit about gender 

To get companies, NGOs and other partners on board, it is important to be explicit about the benefits of including women throughout the project. In many developing countries, women play an important role in agriculture, but lack access to resources. Addressing the constraints faced by women leads to better performing value chains, better agricultural production in general, and economic empowerment of women. The benefits of including women throughout the project should be specified, not only in the introduction of your proposal, but also in the strategy and monitoring. When dealing with companies, it can be useful to stress the economi

The 3rd of 2018 Business Drinks

AgriProFocus Ethiopia and Ethiopia Netherlands Trade for Agricultural Growth (ENTAG) have been organizing these bi-monthly Business Drinks since 2015. Since then, the events have created an opportunity to members and partners of the organizers to come together to promote themselves, to connect and share experiences. Agribusinesses, agricultural development agents, government actors, research institutes and other relevant agricultural actors are continually represented in these events.

For the 3rd of 2018 Business Drinks, over 40 people participated and enjoyed interesting pitches. Among other things, what makes this event unique was that the number of participants who are young entrepreneurs was higher.

Fondsen en overheden moeten investeren in agrifood MKB Afrika

Rabobank Foundation, Food & Business Knowledge Platform, ICCO Cooperation en AgriProFocus presenteren het rapport ‘Critical Capital for African Agrifood SMEs’. Het rapport evalueert de toegang tot risicodragend kapitaal voor midden- en kleinbedrijven (MKB) in de Afrikaanse agrifood sector. Deze bedrijven spelen een belangrijke rol in de voedselzekerheid van de sterk groeiende Afrikaanse bevolking, maar tegelijkertijd hebben zij nog weinig toegang tot passende financiering.

Bied agrifood MKB een breed scala aan financiële diensten

Het rapport focust op agrifood MKB die tussen wal en schip vallen: ze zijn te groot om in aanmerking te komen voor microfinanciering maar te klein voor een investering door banken en private investeerders. Een belangrijke conclusie van het rapport is dat er weinig investeringsfondsen bestaan die willen voorzien in de financieringsvraag van agrifood MKB. Deze vraag ligt vaak onder de 250,000 dollar,

During the second week of May, AgriProFocus organized a gender and value chains training for partner organizations of UTZ (now merging with Rainforest Alliance) in Malawi. The training was aimed at understanding gender and practical tools to integrate gender aspect into work with smallholder tea farmers.

AgriProFocus adapted its Gender in Value Chains coaching track and tools for these trainings. The trainings are currently taking place in four countries involving partners in Eastern, Southern and West Africa and Indonesia.

In Malawi, the training included a field visit to smallholder tea farmers around Mulanje. These farmers are organized in trusts. The trusts sell green leafs to bigger tea estates, which are being processed and then consumed internationally. The fieldtrip was used to get more information from the smallholders regarding how gender differences affect benefits farmers receive, amongst others. In this part of

Bringing the market closer to women

This blog is one of the articles in the Gender Magazine 'Making Gender Work: Cultivating Diversity'    

‘Nancy participated in a trajectory that the Agriprofocus network organized for the private sector in Uganda. Her Agri&Food company, Amatheon-Agri Uganda (AAU), wanted to receive more and better maize from its out-growers. Initial assessments by Nancy at field level showed that average yields were, indeed, low compared to the national average. Closing the yield gap would translate into a potential gain of 682-2,556 megaton maize a year.

Diagnostic tools

To assess the gap between male and female out-growers in participation, leadership and access to extension, Nancy used the diagnostic tools from the AgriProFocus Gender in Value Chains Toolkit. Her findings showed that weeding, which takes a lot of time, is largely delegated to women, but that they have no access to labour-saving tools. Overall the use of improved tools, practices and inp

Debate about Critical Capital for African Agri-Food SMEs shows need for capital and support services at different stages of business development


On May 15, four Dutch development partners invited European development partners in Brussels to present and discuss the outcomes of a joint study on the demand for and supply of risk capital for agri-food Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Sub-Sahara Africa with cases form Kenya, Mali, Tanzania and Zambia. The European Commission, Social Impact Funds, development partners and EU Platforms were present at the event hosted by the Netherlands Permanent Representation to the EU.

The issue

Demand for and supply of risk capital do not match! Entrepreneurs in the SME agri-food sector in Sub-Sahara Africa have a high demand for capital injections between 150 and 250K USD. The growth phase of the businesses determines the need for specific financial deals, type of financial products and business support services (BDS). However, both the private and th
