Technical assistance

Supporting agribusinesses with aggregation, extension, access to inputs, mechanisation and climate-smart practices

The CASA Technical Assistance Facility (TAF) is an £8 million initiative managed by TechnoServe which supports agribusinesses sourcing from smallholder farmers. The CASA TAF works alongside investors to deploy inclusive technical assistance that strengthens upstream supply chains and promotes returns, development impact and resilience. The CASA TAF approach involves a deep dive into the business to draw up an Inclusive Business Plan – a roadmap for the agribusiness to deepen and/or broaden its supply chain to deliver both commercial and social value to smallholders and shareholders. The CASA TAF also provides core business technical assistance to sourcing businesses that are experiencing disruptions in their smallholder supply chain due to Covid-19.
