The Project for Rural Income through Exports will benefit smallholder farmers, and especially woman-headed households and households with little land, involved in the production of coffee, tea, sericulture and horticulture, which is estimated to amount to 128,700. households

The goal of the project is to raise the income of smallholder farmers.

In particular, it will:

  • achieve sustainable increased returns to farmers from key export-driven agricultural value chains, through increased volumes and quality of production, improved marketing and effective farmer organisations;
  • strengthen producer cooperatives as full-fledged economic partners of the private sector.
