Project to Improve Indigenous and Family Farming in Value Chains in the Eastern Region-PPI Phase II

The project’s main objective is to contribute to increasing incomes and the quality of life of small family farmers and the poor rural population by means of their inclusion in value chains, on a sustainable basis and with a focus on gender and environmental concerns, through representative social organizations. Specific aims of the project include the following:

  • increase employment opportunities for the poor rural population, particularly women and young people
  • strengthen rural organizations
  • facilitate the access of family farms to credit for investment (especially to build up productive assets) and working capital
  • support the link between beneficiary family farms and the value chains
  • promote, at the farm level, processes of diversification, adoption of improved technology, increases in production and improved food security.
