About

Welcome to TechnoServe Mozambique! Since our inception in Nampula in 1998, we have been dedicated to combating poverty across the nation. With a team of over 80 professionals spread across four offices in Maputo, Chimio, Nampula, and Pemba, we have a widespread presence enabling us to serve communities in every province of Mozambique.
Always focused on our core mission of business solutions to poverty, TechnoServe Mozambique has directly benefited 300,000 individuals from our initiatives in the past decade, with a substantial investment of 7.5 million USD and increased revenue surpassing 100 million USD.

TechnoServe’s new vision for ending poverty, building on our long track record of developing market-based solutions in agriculture and enterprise development, but now focusing on issues that are more and more prominent like climate change, fragility and unemployment. We aim to expand our work in three key areas: Regenerative Business for People, Nature, and Climate; Nutritious, Inclusive, and Sustainable Food Systems; and Decent Work for the Next Generations.

Our focus will prioritize these areas as we continue to scale up market-based solutions in high-margin agriculture, food processing, and enterprise development. Throughout our work, we will maximize impact by promoting women’s economic empowerment, inclusive technological solutions, and shared value approaches that incentivize sustainable, inclusive business models.

In essence, we are moving from partial answers to more powerful solutions; from climate-smart approaches to regenerative business; from soloed work focusing on individual businesses to local food system transformation; from a focus on topline growth to a focus on subsectors with the greatest potential for job creation and green business models. We want TechnoServe to be the preeminent provider of innovative, market based solutions, and be the best in class at working across sectors to solve the most difficult problems in economic development in ways that respect the planet.

The past successes of TechnoServe Mozambique are witness to the sustainable development we are creating. Combating poverty through a holistic approach, TechnoServe is not only transforming individual lives, but also contributing to the overall economic development of the country. Our new priority areas and constant innovation will ensure that our impact continues for years to come.

Join us as we continue our journey towards a future where poverty is no longer a barrier to prosperity. Together, we can make lasting change in Mozambique and beyond.
