According to bank website, "The project targets at least 10 registered horticulture FPOs that have potential for business growth but suffer from lack of active participation of FPO members and marginal farmers, and need capacity building and financial supports to strengthen their businesses. These FPOs have potentials to mobilize approximately 8,000 farmers as their members. The state is promoting production of high-value crops such as watermelon, mango, papaya, tomato and banana in these districts. In this pilot, the project will support two horticulture commodities, which will be selected during project preparation."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
