Event: Agro Entrepreneurship & Market Facilitation Training Course

Venue: Indepth Research Services, Nairobi, Kenya.

Event Date: 04th -08th December 2017.



Markets are important for rural transformation and poverty alleviation. They provide the direct means through which the poor participate in economic activity as producers (farmers, business groups), employees (providers of labor) and consumers (of goods and services).
Working with smallholder farmers to design and set up new income-generating enterprise opportunities on the other hand is complex. It requires taking time and dedication to ensure success. This training programme aims at building the agro-enterprise capacity of rural development practitioners to enable them to facilitate the market integration of the beneficiaries. The participants will be guided through participatory processes for identifying market opportunities and developing viable agro-enterprises that are sustainable, and which are geared towards improving the incomes of rural farmers, processors and traders.
