Bringing agricultural solutions to the farmers through Farmers' Field Days - Lessons from HortIMPACT business case 7

The Kenya Market-led Horticulture Programme (HortIMPACT) is a Dutch funded programme focused on the development of fruit, vegetable, and potato value chains. The programme capitalizes on opportunities in the Kenyan horticulture sector while addressing some of the challenges that persist in the sector. Through working with Dutch companies, the programme has provided opportunities for Kenyan farmers and companies to build on the Dutch expertise and knowledge through applying technologies and methods that support horticulture sector development. The programme does this by taking a business case approach. Companies (mainly Dutch and Kenyan) come up with at least 50% of the budget, while SNV co-invests the rest. All the business cases are led by companies that play an important role in supporting small and medium size commercial farmers to develop their business. The companies ar

MY YOUTH IN AGRIBUSINESS CARAVAN EXPERIENCE

The Youth in Agribusiness Caravan is the most beautiful agricultural tour I have ever participated in. We were welcome everywhere. It was so easy and friendly for us to ask questions and shared our experience with the farmers. The tour was perfectly organized (interesting and appropriate “professional visits”, good hotels, good food apart from Baguma Restaurant in Mbarara!, nice touristic places like The Equator in Kayabwe, Kitagata hot springs, Nkugute crater lake, Kichwamba Rift valley and also Queen Elizabeth Park). I discovered a wonderful country, amazing landscapes from Mbarara to Fort portal. Every day was different, every day was surprising. I made wonderful friends in the caravan; Agaba Keneth, Phionah Kyomuhendo, Jimmy Ouni, Sharifah Najjuma, Creddy Lakot to name a few, all Agripreneurs from different regions of the country, then Brenda Namirembe, Joy Lwanga and Zurah from Action Aid Uganda and not forgetting Maik Voets and Adinda Lo

Event posted by in Youth - Jeunesse
  05 September 2017, 16:00-18:00
  Arthur van Schendelstraat 500, Utrecht

Many of us recognize the important role of young women and men in realizing a sustainable agri-food sector in the near future. We are also aware of the many challenges young people face as agripreneurs in the sector. Many stakeholders, including members of AgriProFocus, develop and implement projects and programmes in low and middle income countries for and with youth in order to find innovative solutions for these challenges and explore, pilot and upscale opportunities that contribute to the transformation of the agri-food sector. Collaboration and sharing of experiences are important to inspire, increase synergy, to improve and be more effective in tackling worldwide challenges in the agri-food sector.

Why is it so difficult for African farmers to have access to loans?

together with NpM Platform for Inclusive Finance and the Food & Business Knowledge Platform

Josien Sluijs, director of NpM, Platform for Inclusive Finance:

“Why is it so difficult for African farmers to have access to loans? If farmers are organised in formal groups, it is much easier for a financial institution to give a loan. The study ‘Finance for Smallholders’, carried out together with AgriProFocus and funded by the Food & Business Knowledge Platform gives insights. The study provides 14 models in Ethiopia, Mali, Rwanda and Uganda, in which NpM or AgriProFocus have managed to successfully finance farmers.
