Strengthening Cooperatives and Producers

Strengthening Cooperatives and Producer Groups

Smallholder farmers working together in associations and cooperatives fare better in garnering better prices for inputs and services, increased revenues for their crops and benefits such as training, market links and access to improved inputs. NCBA CLUSA has a long history in group formation and strengthening as part of a strategy to increase incomes, yields, education and training for sustainable livelihoods. These democratically owned and governed groups are powerful tools for local development and part of an approach that empowers communities to sustainably address their most pressing economic and social needs.

NCBA CLUSA helps producers establish new cooperatives and group enterprises, supports ongoing strengthening of these businesses and provides training and tools that help scale the business to improve economic opportunity for the members.
