The HortINVEST IIF will be an important instrument for the HortInvest project to support companies and farmer cooperatives to mobilise private sector investment and promote innovations in production and marketing of fruits and vegetables. These companies and cooperatives are encouraged to develop innovative business cases that are inclusive of small and medium sized farmers. The nature of the business cases may vary, as all kinds of activities along the value chain may be included. The size of the business cases will also vary.
The HortInvest project aims to increase farmers’ incomes, grow the relative contribution of the horticultural sector to the economy of Rwanda, and improve the food and nutrition security of households. The project covers six target districts in North-west Rwanda. The project particularly focuses on fruit and vegetable value chains for domestic, regional and international markets. Key target groups are small and medium sized farmers, farmer cooperatives, and companies.
