PRACTICES
A flexible, entrepreneurial approach, responsive to changes in market conditions
Great River recognizes that markets are unpredictable, and that there is a need for activities to respond to changes in market conditions. A flexible and adaptive approach is needed. The Company started off with a series of small pilot interventions and, learning from experience, has abandoned failures, scaled up successes and responds to new opportunities as they arise. Recording the process is crucial in order to ensure continuous information loops are created: our approach is backed by a strong Monitoring and Evaluation and knowledge management system

GENDER

Work with over 2,600 female famers
Gender plays a pivotal role in the Company's activities. The Company does not only support women's economic empowerment, but economic empowerment for all, a concept that necessitates the active participation of women in wage earning agricultural, financing and business activities .
Contributing towards increased participation rates of female farmers in Company's activities makes market sense, therefore, the company is focusing on facilitating:
  • Support women's access to agricultural production inputs, information and good agronomic practices (GAP), which have proven successful.
  • Support women producers' linkages to networks, through facilitating the creation of women groups where they can share experiences, and have better access to inputs and support services.
  • Provide women producers' access to markets
  • Provide Business Development Services (BDS) and finance for women traders and processors,
