  • The Eastern African Farmers’ Federation (EAFF) was formed in 2001 as a non-political, non-profit and democratic organization, whose role is to voice the concerns and interests of farmers of the region to enhance their social-economic status and regional cohesiveness. EAFF’s establishment was championed by national farmers’ organizations from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and DR Congo. Membership was subsequently extended to Rwanda, Burundi, Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia, and South Sudan. EAFF membership is now composed of 23 farmer organizations serving about 20 million farmers. EAFF is one of the IFAD funded investment projects in East Africa and will benefit directly from the outcomes, results and best practices that will be generated and disseminated in this project.

     

    EAFF secured grant funding from IFAD to implement a youth project dubbed “scaling up rural youth access to inclusive financial services for entrepreneurship and employment’. This project is being implemented in 3 countries i.e. Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda The overall goal of this project is to enhance the current process of raising capital for poor rural youth enterprises (start-up/existing/scale-ups) by mitigating financial institutions risks, increasing interactions with industry experts, acquiring new knowledge and sharing success stories.

    With the above background, EAFF would like to use experts to help the agricultural enterprises to access financing to scale up their enterprises. This is part of a mentorship and linkages approach required by these enterprises.
