Dairy value chains development for pastoralist communities in Borena

F&S Ethiopia are participating in a project entitled “Developing Inclusive and Profitable Dairy Value Chains for Pastoralist Communities in Borena Zone”, as co-implementer with our consortium partners CST Ethiopia, CIFA, and OPA.

The three-year project is funded by Jersey Overseas AID (JOA), with the objective of enhancing livelihoods of dairy producing pastoralists, and agro-pastoralist women and their households in the district of Moyale, Borena zone.

John Otini, Consultant at F&S and MSD Trainer

Among the many project activities by partners and stakeholders, our team of consultants conducted Market Systems Development (MSD) training earlier this month. The training was held in Yabello with 34 participants from project stakeholders such as Government partners, NGOs, Banks, MFIs, as well as CIFA and OPA.

The MSD support will continue further, and will successfully facilitate the linkage between the dairy producers and the dairy value chain actors, including in the private sector, Government agencies, and other entities working along the dairy value chain.

By the end of the project implementation, the dairy market system in Moyale will be strengthened in ways that empower women socially and economically, and that conserve the ecosystem.

Closing Ceremony of the PAC-PME Program and Launch of the Mali Mentors Alliance: A Milestone in Support for Malian Entrepreneurs

On April 26, 2024 in Bamako we organized a ceremony full of emotions and celebration, marking the closing of the Growth Support Program for Malian Small and Medium Enterprises (PAC-PME). Initiated in August 2022 with the first cohort in Bamako, the PAC-PME has since extended its impact through four cohorts, including two in Bamako, one in Sikasso and one in Ségou. This ceremony not only celebrates the successes of the program but also officially inaugurates the Alliance Mali Mentors (AMM), a professional network of entrepreneur mentors, representing a new chapter in the continued support of Malian entrepreneurs. PAC-PME will continue to consolidate its results until September of this year.
