Experiences of others

De financiële gezondheid van de coöperatie is sterk verbeterd

- Melkamu Fantahun

Withouth Agriterra, we would never have started the Niger project. We want to concentrate on researching varieties and facilitating the growth process. That is our expertise. But how to create and monitor a cooperative - that's where Agriterra comes in.

Cooperatives: the engine of progress

Agriterra works towards the professionalisation of agricultural cooperatives and organisations. We have local presence in various countries. Our approach makes it possible for cooperatives to take charge of matters themselves and build their own futures.

Together with our partners we make it possible for producers - farmers who have organised themselves - to take on a pioneering role. This is based on realistic growth ambitions and the legitimate desire to change.

The farmers’ cooperatives that work with Agriterra have at least one thousand members and have built a track record operating as a business. These organisations also have a proven track record in advocacy, lobbying and providing services to their members.

The expertise of our Agripool
From agricultural extension, such as providing advice on crop management and nutrition, to knowledge of business development and organisational and administrative matters: with Agriterra’s intermediation, our 'Agripool'  of experts provides advisory services to international farmers’ organisations.
