The primary objective of this project is to increase the sustainable incomes of primarily women small-holder farmers and agro-pastoralists in the Ethiopian regions of Oromia and Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region, by improving their market participation for three locally-grown commodities: bulla (porridge produced from the enset tree), aloe and vegetables. The beneficiaries, who are already organized in 32 economic collectives (cooperatives, self-help and community economic groups), are expected to develop stronger competencies in agro-business management, in accessing technology, equipment and material, and in developing business relations within the product demand and the associated supply chains.
