How CASA and IFFNT are working together

Project title 1: Improve producer technical and management capacity for product aggregation and access to better markets through improved smallholder farmer organization

Project title 2: Advocacy on tax reforms (strengthening the capacity of IFFNT to present the case for a tax waiver on feed imports)

Support from CASA helped build the capacity of 1,200 smallholder farmers, linking them to offtakers. Twenty-five hubs were established, with each hub having a savings and loans fund dubbed Hub Bank. In each region, two value-addition sites were established where kilns were built. Farmers were taught how to process fish by smoking to add value and increase shelf life
