Where We Work

Globally Present, Locally Driven

Our roots stem from a private sector agribusiness in America’s heartland. Our projects, partnerships and local insights cross continents. These factors steer how we work to strengthen global agricultural markets. But, you don’t have to take our word for it. Learn more about individual projects below.

Cooperative Development Program

Strengthening vertically integrated dairy cooperative businesses

The USAID Cooperative Development Program (CDP) has worked to increase performance of cooperative enterprises to improve livelihoods of their members and build more inclusive and resilient communities. We have implemented CDP for nearly eight years, partnering with cooperatives in Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, Malawi and Rwanda to improve cooperative performance in response to evolving market conditions.

The Cooperative Development Program will advance cooperatives in Rwanda and Malawi to improve their enabling environment, capacity and resources to meet the evolving needs of their members. From 2010 to 2016, our work in the dairy sector in Rwanda and Kenya focused on partnering to improve cooperative operational management, organizational governance and business decision-making.
