Agro Entrepreneurship & Market Facilitation Course by IndepthResearch: 10:07am On Mar 19, 2018
Event: Agro Entrepreneurship & Market Facilitation Course

Venue: Indepth Research Services, Nairobi, Kenya.

Event Date: 16th - 20th April 2018.



Markets are important for rural transformation and poverty alleviation. They provide the direct means through which the poor participate in an economic activity as producers (farmers, business groups); as employees (providers of labor); and as 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 most vulnerable 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.
