TechnoServe serves as the manager of the Technical Assistance Facility (TAF), which supports the African Agriculture Fund, a private equity fund, to address food security challenges across Africa. TAF provides technical assistance to small and growing businesses (SGBs) invested in by the African Agriculture Fund, and improves linkages between enterprises and smallholder outgrowers.
The Storage and Proper Post-Harvest Improvements for Resource Efficiency (SAPPHIRE) program is working to increase incomes for 20,000 smallholder maize and rice farmers in the Mbeya Region. Better post-harvest handling will increase the value of grain crops, and improved access to storage will reduce losses.
