Donor Impact Report - SSBVC
Tanzania is experiencing steady economic growth, but many small business entrepreneurs are not well positioned to benefit. The obstacles they face include lack of business management training, limited access to production technology, access to financing, and limited market access and awareness. MEDA’s Strengthening Small Business Value Chains (SSBVC) is a six-year project working to strengthen value chains in specific sectors of Tanzania. Using a “lead firm” approach, MEDA equips businesses to develop their supply chains while engaging, training, and nurturing small entrepreneurs and supplying them with consistent, high quality crops.

Donor Impact Report - UHBDP
The Ukraine Horticulture Business Development Project (UHBDP) is building on MEDA’s success in phase one of our work with farmers in Ukraine. The main goal is to increase incomes of poor farmers in four oblasts – Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Mykolayiv and Odessa by: Expanding access to markets; providing equipment, training and technical assistance on better agricultural practices; improving access to finance so farmers can grow their business; strengthening small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) to spur market expansion; promoting alliances and developing supply chain logistics to ensure cooperation.
