Impact on low income groups, both employees, producers and entrepreneurs.
Agriculture sector contributes around 35% to the GDP. The income in the agriculture sector accounts on average around US$200 per capita/year. Given that two-thirds of the population works primarily in agriculture, low farm productivity translates into high rates of poverty.
With the annual supply of DoC within the SAPA project, will provide income to at least 400 broiler farmers and their workers. Besides, as a result of the project, about 16 million kg corn with a total value of US$ 5 million/year needs to be sourced yearly from smallholder corn farmers. This gives opportunities to enhance the livelihoods of 2,500 farmers and their workers. Through the training programs and introduction of improved production technologies, farmer income of smallholder corn and broiler farmers is expected to increase significantly.
