Tecnologia e Consultoria Agro-Pecuária
Partnership period: August 2016 – July 2018
ACHIEVEMENTS: By establishing three new “Farmers’ Homes”, Tecnologia e Consultoria Agro-Pecuária (TECAP) reached 45,713 farmers with improved inputs and access to mechanization services and generated $3 million in sales of agricultural inputs and mechanization services.
PURPOSE: Strengthen the agricultural market’s weak agro inputs distribution network to increase farmers’ access to improved seed, fertilizers, pest management products, and equipment.
APPROACH: TECAP scaled up its network of one-stop agriculture service centers, called farmer houses, from a single location in Maputo to additional locations in Chimoio, Nampula, and Tete as part of the program partnership. TECAP plans to further expand the distribution of inputs through a network of 50 agrodealers, 20 franchisees, and 250 agriculture development agents.
