Supporting Small-Scale Dairy Farmers

Together with several partners,TechnoServe supports the development of small-scale milk producers as they improve the management of their farms and therefore increase their family income. With the leadership of Danone, during the first phase 300 small-scale dairy farmers have been linked to the company's value chain. Farmers receive technical assistance on a regular basis and business support to obtain financing of key infrastructure. Farmers have increased their herd size and income through increases in productivity and quality and the first cohort of farmers has already tripled their net income.
