US$4 Million Earmarked for Small-Holding Farmers

AGRA earmarks an initial US$4 million to support small-holding farmer groups in four African countries

The Alliance for Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), headed by former United Nations secretary-general, Kofi Annan, has earmarked an initial US$4 million to support small-holding farmer groups in four African countries, out of which Ghana will get US$900 000.

In line with the support, AGRA launched the maiden Farmer Organisation Support Centre (FOSCA) in Ghana to set the tone for small-holding farmers who belong to recognisable and thriving farmer groups to benefit from AGRA grants and technical support under the FOSCA initiative.

FOSCA lead coordinator, Fadel Ndiame, says that the FOSCA initiative, which will also be launched in three other AGRA-member countries - Mali, Tanzania and Mozambique, says that this initiative is designed to assist the small-holder farmers to have access to opportunities to improve their produce and income.
