TechnoServe helps create opportunity for hardworking people in Africa, Latin America and Asia. Our market-based approach promotes small and growing businesses in some of the world’s poorest communities. These businesses generate new jobs for workers and income opportunities for smallholder farmers. And through their hard work, families and communities can lift themselves out of poverty.
