Help Channel Burundi supports the development of agribusiness clusters by strengthening the market position of small scale farmers leading to reduced poverty, increased food security and community development.
It is through the Self Help Groups (Self-help, solidarity, savings and Loan groups) and Village Savings and Loans Associations( VSLA) that the representatives of the households receive various trainings allowing them to set up micro projects and other income-generating activities.
Help Channel trains the farmers’s cooperatives on how to improve in product quality and business planning. The Cooperatives are also able to negotiate for better prices for their produce and market their produce in bulk.
Effective farmers’ organizations increase the incomes of their members through services such as supplying agricultural inputs and credit financing.
