NCBA CLUSA works to assist agribusiness, entrepreneurs, and farmers to increase their economic benefit. We do this by building the ability of each partner to improve their work, creating mutually beneficial relationships, and a business enabling environment conducive to growth.
NCBA CLUSA engages partners as owners of their business and the systems we create, with the goal of improving the standards of living of all involved, including more marginalized small holder farmers and rural businesses. We provide solutions customized to local conditions that leverage technology, lower costs, improve quality, and access lucrative markets.
Income and sustainable business are the centerpiece of NCBA CLUSA’s approach to economic development. We focus on markets, investment, and the value addition that build assets and empowers farmers, entrepreneurs and other local businesses to succeed. NCBA CLUSA uses market incentives, and risk mitigation to create new opportunities for farmers and the industries they supply. Within this context, NCBA CLUSA works with rural youth to improve economic opportunities in their communities, and improve the income they can earn through value addition, services, and business relationships with suppliers and markets.
