- Food for the Hungry Program Coordinator
Initiatedrnand managed the OFDA/USAID-funded Market-Led Livelihood Recovery andrnEnhancement Program, which was operational in "Angacha",rnHalaba," and "Shashogo" districts of the Southern Nation andrnNationalist and People Region. Successfully led the Agriculture MarketingrnProgram (AMP). We first selected four value chains or subsectors (honey, potatoes, red pepper, and Haricot bean)rnbased on the agricultural potential of the three districts. After that, wernconducted a value chain analysis for each subsector and identified some of thernbottlenecks. From the value chain analysis, it was found that a shortage ofrnimproved agricultural technologies and a lack of market were the major problems.rnBecause of that, we organized honey, haricot bean, and pepper producers’rncooperatives in Halaba and Shashogo districts and potatoes and honey producers’rncooperatives in Angacha distinct. In addition, we provided the requiredrntraining and improved agricultural technologies such as improved seed, honeyrnextractors, improved beehives, and others.
