Where We Work
Home to many of the world’s fastest growing economies, Africa is poised for unprecedented opportunity and prosperity. Yet with half of the continent’s people still living below the poverty line, a dramatically expanding youth population and crop yields that have remained stagnant for decades, Africa also faces a host of unique challenges. TechnoServe has more than 40 years of experience across 20 African countries, working with public and private partners to catalyze broad-based economic growth through agricultural and enterprise development.Explore Region
Although Latin American and Caribbean countries continue to experience high levels of inequality and public security concerns, the region has seen robust economic growth in recent years. The region’s poverty rate is at its lowest level in three decades, but sustained economic growth depends on increased productivity and innovation. TechnoServe has implemented agricultural and enterprise development programs in the region since 1969, working with local, regional and multinational partners to strengthen sustainable farms, businesses and industries.Explore Region
