According to the IFC, the goal of this project is to enhance the efficiency of the upstream and downstream agri supply chains in Malawi focusing on maize and soybeans. This will be done by training different groups of stakeholders, including field extension officers, agro-dealers, Village-Based Agents (VBAs) and farmer organizations. IFC will provide capacity building to help smallholder famers, farmer organizations and other players along the supply chain to conduct sustainable farming practices, incorporate climate change risk mitigation and make efficient use of agricultural inputs. These will then on-train an estimated 8,000 farmers (of which 35% women). Training of the VBAs is intended to strengthen them as an effective resource for farmers in the VBA network, whereas agro-dealers training is focused on strengthening their business analytics, budgeting and planning skills, and strategies for growing the business. Farmer organization training will help them become better distribution and product collection partners and smallholder farmers.
By doing so, IFC aims to support ETG’s inputs distribution system and/or improve crop aggregation for ETG.
As stated on the company's website, ETG has developed into a global player with a diverse portfolio of expertise across multiple industries, encompassing Agricultural inputs, logistics, merchandising and processing, supply chain optimization, digital transformation and energy.
