Raising Rural Incomes

TechnoServe is an implementing partner in PrOpCom Mai-Karfi, a new six-year program working to increase the incomes of 500,000 northern Nigerians by 50 percent. Since the program kicked off in 2012, TechnoServe has led the evaluation of existing and potential PrOpCom markets, identifying soy and grain storage as promising opportunities for new interventions.


Supporting Innovative Agriculture

TechnoServe is running Agro Initiative Zimbabwe, a national business plan competition. The program supports promising ideas in agriculture by awarding capital prizes and technical assistance to small- and medium-sized businesses that include smallholder farmers in their supply chains and can serve as models for the broader industry.
