  • Market Development (MADE) Programme for Northern Ghana The Market Development (MADE) Programme for Northern Ghana is a six-year programme funded by the UK Government’s Department for International Development (DFID) driving changes in the way agribusinesses operate and engage with smallholder farmers (SHFs) in the Northern Savannah Ecological Zone (NSEZ) of Ghana. Since March 2014, MADE has worked directly with over 100 agribusiness and support enterprises to help build the productivity and resilience of over 70,000 smallholder farmers (SHFs). MADE’s market systems approach has been to pioneer annual cycles of interventions with agribusiness partners (input suppliers and aggregators) to validate the commercial case for delivering comprehensive packages (bundles) of inputs and services to SHFs. It has encouraged agribusinesses to introduce a farm enterprise advisory service to ensure farmers enjoy the “seven rights” with respect to receiving the right quality of inputs and services, in the right quantity, at the right time, at the right price, in the right place, in the right form and, crucially, using these inputs and services in the right way. The employment of Farm Enterprise Advisors (FEAs) by agribusinesses to work with their outreach farmers has proved to be a key element of this business model, improving relationships, raising farming yields and standards, allowing effective monitoring and delivering faster growth. MADE has supported partner firms with their management systems for this approach and encouraged partnerships with specialist service providers, wholesalers and end-users to maximise commercial and financing opportunities across the value chains. MADE has also encouraged the introduction of new technologies such as water capture and drip irrigation, improved mechanisation systems, climate smart agriculture and has worked with the Ghana Commodity Exchange (GCX) to improve post-harvest handling and storage. Total Project Budget: £12,231,785

  • PEP-Z PEP Zambia is a six-year (2014-2020) UKaid-funded private sector development programme designed to encourage and support investment and job creation. We work through intervention partnerships across the programme's four sectors to achieve specific development objectives in each sector: 1) Food and agriculture: Increased competitiveness and value of Zambian food products in end consumer markets. 2) Mines and mining services: Increased sustainable and inclusive economic impact of mining in Zambia. 3)Tourism and hospitality: Increased value and proportion of tourist revenues captured by local businesses. 4) Business Services for Investment and Growth: Increased access to business services and sources of finance that support growth-oriented businesses. PEP Zambia helps intervention partners to introduce business innovations (new products, services or business models) that deliver profitable growth for our partner and open up new market opportunities for Zambian micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs). The core of the PEPZ value offer to potential partners is formulated under four headings: 1) Capital: Our cost-sharing financial intervention mechanisms designed to incentivise business innovation that will benefit Zambian SMEs and micro-enterprises; 2) Capacity: Our internal expertise and our network of external specialist consultants who can help intervention partners design and implement solutions; 3) Connections: Our networks and contacts that allow us to facilitate business connections and transactions; and 4) Compliance: Our understanding of the formal and informal rules of focus sector markets means that we can help businesses to meet legal/regulatory requirements and client/consumer needs. Total Project Budget: £14,600,627
