Connecting, Transforming and Sustaining Livelihoods

Agribusiness Support for Smallholders (AbSS) Project

The programme covers a period of 1 year from 2012-2013 supported by FAO.


It covers 4 counties namely; Eastern, central and rift valley.


To contribute to increasing productivity, commercialization and competitiveness of small producers and SMAEs in the project’s pilot sites.

  • Producers and SMAEs that will be the direct beneficiaries of project support should realize 10-15 percent increases in income even during the relatively short life of the project.
  • The project will reinforce institutional capacity to accelerate and sustain progress with respect to the commercialization and competitiveness priority area of the ASDS, thereby contributing to the Government’s objective of position the agricultural sector as a key driver for economic development of the country.


  • Commercially viable and mutually beneficial business models linking producers to SMAEs in place and working

Improved institutional capacity is used to upscale and replicate linkage models and provide complementary support to increase value addition and competitiveness
