USAID Africa: Bridging the Agricultural Supply Gap in Rural Ethiopia
Bridging the Agricultural Supply Gap in Rural Ethiopia
To address the lack of affordable quality supplies in remote farming communities, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), through its five-year Graduation with Resilience to Achieve Sustainable Development activity, developed a private agro-dealership model, creating sales hubs for essential supplies at the local level.
Between October 2015 and September 2016, the Care-implemented activity recruited and trained 32 agro-dealers who sold approximately $240,000 worth of supplies, primarily livestock feed, vegetable seed, and simple tools to 45,000 customers.
