With the dispatch of qualified specialists as development workers, GIZ contributes to the sustainable improvement of living conditions of people in developing and transition countries.
The programme Promoting Rural Development already supports Farmer Organisations (FO) to fulfil their role as business drivers for small-scale farmers. Further support to business and trade organisations representing Small and Medium Enterprises is planned. FOs and other organisations need to understand their markets, opportunities and respective requirements, develop business models, secure financial viability and independence, enhance management structures and processes and offer relevant services to their members. Individual members need to develop their entrepreneurial mind-set and business skills, manage capacities and understand the benefits and costs of effectively engaging in business-oriented farmer or trade organisations.
