This project is entitled “Capacity building and incoming generation for small poultry farmers in Burkina Faso and Mali”. It belongs to the agricultural sector in general and more specifically to the breeding of laying hens. The project was implemented in the border area of two neighbouring countries of West Africa that are Burkina Faso and Mali, with its target group being small rural farmers.

Its general objective is to contribute to SDG 2 to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture in Burkina Faso and Mali. Specifically, it aims to contribute to the promotion of social entrepreneurship by small poultry farmers and the pooling of means for a reinforced production in the field of poultry farming in the Hauts-Bassins regions of Burkina Faso and in the Third Region of Mali.

This involves i) the construction and equipping of a model farm on the border between Burkina Faso and Mali to strengthen the technical capacities of production (in the field of poultry farming), commercial and entrepreneurial; ii) the organization of small farmers in Economic Interest Grouping (GIE) to set up a civil society organization to represent, defend and implement actions for the development of GIE members; iii) set up a support fund for financing smallholder projects.
