How CASA and NACCFL are working together

Project title: Strengthening farmer organizations and facilitating smallholder access to commercial markets

CASA will work with NACCFL to improve member farmers’ post-harvest management and provide technical assistance to negotiate offtake deals. The produce from 25 selected coops will be promoted under NACCFL’s Kisan ko Poko (Farmers Basket) brand. These coops will also receive capacity building to improve their management, governance, marketing and general business skills. A unique model to promote and expand vegetable aggregation and sales will be piloted with cooperatives in provinces 2 and 5
