The objective of the project is to enhance the agricultural productivity of small and medium scale farmers and improve value addition along the priority value chains in the participating states.

  The objective will be achieved through supporting farmers’ productivity and their linkage to markets, facilitating consolidation of agricultural product and cottage processing, facilitating farmers and small and medium businesses’ clustering and connection to infrastructure network and business services, providing technical assistance and institutional support both to beneficiaries, federal and state governments in value chain development. Increased productivity, production, and improving processing and marketing of the targeted value chains will lead to the creation of jobs along the value chains.
