Description

The goal of this technical assistance (FAPA and FRMC) project worth USD 2,076,552 is, on the one hand, to foster the inclusion of farmers in the local value chain and improve their living conditions and, on the other hand, to broaden the inclusiveness of the loan awarded by the Bank to OLAM International by strengthening the managerial capacity of cooperatives and farmers. In Gabon, the technical assistance project will guarantee resource sustainability for farmers and cooperatives through targeted training on better management of cooperatives and the personal resources of farmers as well awareness-building on the productivity of labour with a view to boosting sector competitiveness. The project will have two components, namely:

(i) support to SOTRADER, the Gabonese subsidiary of OLAM under the GRAINE (Gabonese Agricultural Achievements and National Initiatives) Programme, to build the capacities of 45 cooperatives and 2430 farmers involved in the cultivation of palm oil, banana, tomato, cassava and chilli; and

(ii) the establishment of an electronic payments system so as to increase the banking access rate and financial inclusion.
