    This volume provides a global review of experiences and learning on the broad subject of value chain finance for agriculture in developing countries. Value chains in agriculture comprise a set of actors who conduct a linked sequence of value-adding activities involved in bringing a product from its raw material stage to the final consumer. Value chain finance, as described in this volume, refers to the financial flows to those actors from both within the value chain and financial flows to those actors from the outside as a result of their being linked within a value chain.

    The role of women producer organizations in agricultural value chains - practical lessons from Africa and India 2011
    Also available in:

    Inducing institutional and organizational change to foster greater economic opportunities forsmall holders is often best achieved by enabling stakeholders to directly confront and comparealternative models of development operating within socio-economic and political environmentsdifferent from their own. It is this basic premise that motivated FAO to initiate an Exposure andExchange Programme (EEP): to enable selected women farmers’ organizations from West andCentral Africa and India’s SEWA (Self -Employed Women Association) to exchange and learn from their experiences. The week-long EEP, held in November 2010 and hosted by SEWA in Ahmedabad, state of Gujarat, India, provided an arena to showcase the SEWA development model in action and for African and Indian women leaders to hold group discussions and exchanges on the roles of small holders in markets. The discussions and exchanges enabled the FAO facilitating team to identify and formulate a number of important insights and lessonsabou t capacity building. This report critically evaluates the SEWA model and draws conclusionsrelevant to African women producers organizations to better meet the challenges of raising Africa’s agricultural potential, improve incomes for small farmers, and ensure greater food security.
