Fayoum Agricultural Development Project

Fayoum Agricultural Development Project

The objectives of this project were to provide 31,000 small-scale farm families with the means to increase their income and their standard of living. In order to achieve these objectives, the project focused on five activities: extension and research, irrigation and water management, animal husbandry, farm mechanization, credit and marketing, and technical assistance and training.

During the course of the project, wheat and maize output increased by 124 and 18 per cent respectively, and almost 17,000 buffalo and cattle were purchased through the project’s credit facility. Some 19,000 loans were granted, and repayment was satisfactory. Moreover, it was estimated that the average farmer’s income increased by about one third. The fact that production and incomes increased demonstrates that the living standards of many of the project participants improved significantly.
