Boosting the local economy by reinforcing the manioc and groundnut value chains
Because some groundnuts and manioc clones can resist to drought they enhance the value of the very dry zone in northeast Haiti. They are part of a local production system responding to the local market’s demand. However identified constraints do not allow them to develop their full potential at the farmers’ expense.
The project’s aim is to sustainably improve the income in Limonade’ and Fort-Liberté’ rural households through stimulated value chains adapted to the agroecological contexts (groundnuts, manioc).
Expected results:200 agricultural VSEs supported, 5 transformation units professionalized Budget :$100,000 over 2013-2014 Funding :Oxfam. Project management :AGRISUD. Partnerships :GRADIMIRH.
