  • Increase sales of improved seed and fertilizer increase yields, sales, and consumption of high-quality horticulture crops
  • Increase private sector investment in the horticulture market system
  • Increase volumes and sales of high-quality horticulture products in domestic, regional and/or international markets

Anticipated results include:

  • Impact 2,400 horticulture MSMEs and
  • Increase the revenue of assisted MSMEs by at least 15% annually
