According to the Bank’s website, the Jubaili Agrotec Group is a leading importer, distributor and formulator/manufacturer of agrochemicals in Africa. It's product portfolio of pesticides (i.e., insecticide, herbicide, fungicide), animal feed, veterinary drugs, fertilizer products, seeds and sprayers are distributed through its own retail networks (30%) and agro-dealers (70%) to small holder farmers to improve agricultural productivity. An IFC loan of $35M to Jubaili to expand its pesticides production plant in Nigeria, build a herbicide manufacturing plant in Ghana, and packaging materials facilities in Uganda and Tanzania is to allow it increase its sales and market shares in the target countries from 7-15% to 35%. In the implementation of the this MAS Advisory Services project, IFC will provide technical assistance to Jubaili to develop and deploy an ESMS for Jubaili’s agrochemicals production plant in Nigeria in compliance with IFC's Performance Standards, directly train farmers cooperative leaders as training of trainers (ToT) on the optimal use and handling of crop protection products (CPP) using a GAP digital training platform to train their members, and deploy the IFC ALP program to professionalize the last mile retailers. As Gender has become an integral part of IFC's projects, women farmers will be prioritized to participate in the direct capacity building programs using GAP digital training platforms.
