Project Title: Small Agriculture Market Support (SAMS)

Duration: 1 Year

Location: Maridi, Ibba, Yambio, Nzara, Ezo and Tambura

Funding Partner: World Food Programme

Project Overview and Objective:

The SAMS project aims to enhance food security for smallholder farmers, and enhance market opportunities, fostering improved livelihoods, resilience, and sustainable food systems in Maridi, Ibba, Yambio, Nzara, Ezo, and Tambura Counties of Western Equatoria State (WES). With specific objectives to:

  • Improve household food and nutrition security through:
  • Increased production and productivity.
  • Enhanced post-harvest handling (Product/value chain development).
  • Enhance market access by:
  • Initiating market linkage initiatives.
  • Developing market infrastructure/systems (Market access and capacity enhancement).
  • Strengthen national and sub-national institutional capacity via:
  • Supporting government agriculture institutions.
  • Enhancing extension capacity (Institutional capacity strengthening).

Key Components:

Increased Crop Production and Productivity: Provide modern agriculture practices training to smallholder farmers (SHFs) and farmer organizations (FOs), and facilitate access to improved technologies for enhanced agriculture production.

Improved Post-Harvest Handling: Offer training and coaching in post-harvest management practices,  promote and provide improved post-harvest equipment and technologies.

Enhanced Market Access: Managing rural aggregation centres/networks as selling points for farmers’ produce and facilitating linkages of smallholder farmers and Farmer organisations to markets and business opportunities.

Access to Market Infrastructure Improved: Through the Provision of business development support services and establishing and strengthening Village Savings and Loans (VSL) schemes.

Enhanced National and Sub-national Institutional Capacity: Supporting stakeholders’ coordination on Food and Nutrition Security and livelihood issues.

Extension Services Improvement: Improving the capacity of individuals to promote extension services, contributing to knowledge of and agricultural technological transfers to improve access, availability, and utilisation.  

This project aims to empower smallholder farmers, particularly women and youth, by equipping them with the necessary skills, resources, and market access to enhance their agricultural productivity, post-harvest management, and market engagement, ultimately leading to improved food security and sustainable livelihoods.

Impact and Outlook:

Since its inception, the SAMS project has made significant strides in bolstering the capacity of 50,000 smallholder farmers in effectively managing postharvest losses and accessing vital postharvest technologies. By providing over 500 silos, 10,000 hermetic bags, 3,000 tarpaulins, and hand shellers to farmers, the project has achieved a remarkable 20% reduction in post-harvest losses among rural farmers. This reduction not only safeguards valuable agricultural produce but also contributes to increased household incomes and enhanced food security within the communities served.
Furthermore, the establishment of 20+ rural aggregation centres (RACs) has been instrumental in connecting over 15,000 smallholder farmers, facilitating the aggregation of an impressive 1,458 metric tons of maize between 2019 and 2022 alone. This aggregation effort streamlines the agricultural supply chain, optimizing market access for farmers and fostering economic growth at the grassroots level.
Moreover, the SAMS project has demonstrated its commitment to sustainable agricultural development by strengthening the capacity of over 68 farmer organizations. Through targeted training and capacity-building initiatives, these organizations are better equipped to advocate for the interests of their members, implement best practices, and navigate challenges in the agricultural sector effectively.
In summary, the SAMS project's holistic approach to enhancing agricultural resilience and livelihoods has not only mitigated postharvest losses but also empowered smallholder farmers, bolstered rural economies, and contributed to the overall well-being and prosperity of the communities it serves.
