In 2014, TechnoServe provided agronomic training and business and marketing support to almost 38,000 smallholder farmers, by working directly with more than 2,700 farmers on capacity building and indirectly with 35,000 farmers through farmer producer organizations, across 12 states in India. Forty-five percent of the beneficiaries were women. We developed innovative ways to help farmers adapt to climate change and water scarcity, and supported 25 entrepreneurs to grow strong businesses that will improve local economies.
