Fostering Business Expansions and Increasing Farmers Access to Quality Fertilizers- Agri Input Market Systems Highlight

The African Fertilizer and Agribusiness Partnerships (AFAP) is an independent non-profit organization created through a partnership of African development organizations. In collaboration with Feed the Future Uganda Inclusive Agricultural Markets (FtF IAM) Activity, AFAP has linked 11 hub agro-dealers to suppliers of quality inputs such as YARA, Export Trading Group(ETG), GrainPulse, and Bukola. As a result of the strengthened relationship between MK Farmers, one of the hub agro-dealers in Kapchorwa, and YARA, MK Farmers can now get inputs on credit from Yara. So far, MK Farmers got fertilizer credit worth KSH 9,000,000 (Est UGX 282,330,000) from YARA. This has increased the working capital for MK Farmers which will lead to business expansion and also more farmers will access quality fertilizers. AFAP also continued to build the capacity of UNADA to sustainably provide member-centered services at a cost to increase its revenues. UNADA is currently piloting a demand creation program for Brac Social Business Enterprise products in Kitgum and Amuru which will increase its demand and revenues for UNADA.
