A Decade of Transformational Impact: Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation 2012-2022
A Decade of Transformational Impact, 2012-2022
Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation (Partnering for Innovation) has changed the landscape for supporting agriculture in emerging markets. Since its inception in 2012, Partnering for Innovation, a USAID-funded program implemented by Fintrac Inc., built 75 partnerships with agribusinesses to help them sell new technologies and management practices to smallholder farmers, who represent a potential market of more than 500 million customers worldwide.
The program’s shared-value partnerships have catalyzed the private sector to enter, expand and achieve commercial sustainability in smallholder farmer markets around the world. Businesses are provided with the investment assistance, expert guidance and technical support necessary to create a growing and lasting customer base for their agricultural innovations. More than 1.8 million smallholder farmers have purchased over $133 million worth of these agricultural technologies, enabling them to boost farm production, raise incomes, reinvest in their businesses and strengthen food security.
Learn how Partnering for Innovation’s engagement with the private sector over the past decade has resulted in transformational impacts for private sector businesses and smallholder farmers alike.
