Description and results


The primary objective of this project is to increase the sustainable incomes of primarily women small-holder farmers and agro-pastoralists in the Ethiopian regions of Oromia and Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region, by improving their market participation for three locally-grown commodities: bulla (porridge produced from the enset tree), aloe and vegetables. The beneficiaries, who are already organized in 32 economic collectives (cooperatives, self-help and community economic groups), are expected to develop stronger competencies in agro-business management, in accessing technology, equipment and material, and in developing business relations within the product demand and the associated supply chains.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: (1) 4,211 small-holder farmers, traders and cooperative members (of which 69% or 2,902 are female) with increased sustainable incomes from local agricultural value chains; (2) 136 local partner staff, policy makers, practitioners and researchers with the capacity to use and replicate community asset-based entrepreneurship models to economically empower small-holder farmers, particularly women; (3) increased knowledge and skills of women and men in rural economic collectives to manage the production and marketing of value added products; (4) improved collaboration between actors in the value chain; and (5) increased integration of asset-based approaches to community economic development by decision-makers and practitioners.
