DESCRIPTION

TechnoServe works with enterprising people in the developing world to build
competitive farms, businesses, and industries. We are a non-profit
organization that develops business solutions to poverty by linking people to
information, capital, and markets. Our work is rooted in the idea that given
the opportunity, hardworking men and women in even the poorest places can
generate income, jobs, and wealth for their families and communities. With
more than four decades of proven results, we believe in the power of private
enterprise to transform lives.

consumers and more profitable market opportunities for local farmers. This is
achieved by supporting local food processing companies in Ethiopia, Kenya,
Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia through remote technical assistance and training
from world leading food processing companies under PFS to increase the
availability of safe, affordable and nutritious food. For more details go to
