Providing Market Linkages for Smallholder Soya Farmers
Through a grant made by the Technical Assistance Facility, TechnoServe is helping 500 smallholder soya farmers integrate into the supply chain of Goldenlay, a poultry layer company located in Zambia’s Copperbelt province. The program, called 3SP, will facilitate the adoption of good agricultural practices and access to finance for local farmers selling to Goldenlay. The project will also explore the introduction of de-hulling and harvesting equipment for local soya producers. 3SP’s ultimate goal is to increase household incomes and food security, laying the foundation for sustainable, local economic growth.
