Africa in Action: Cashew Community Development

Region: West Africa
Competency: Agricultural Development

Development workers in West Africa are partnering with rural farmers to alleviate poverty through a Demonstration Farm:

  1. FARM – current phase with an emphasis on planting grafted cashews, researching best practices, and propagating underutilized fruit trees and perennials
  2. FINANCE - when the cashews produce new grafts can be propagated and distributed to farmers, coupled with loans/training in the best practices discovered
  3. FACTORY - once enough farmers are growing cashews, the final factory phase can be launched; this for-profit social business will generate income for local farmers by processing cashews for export
