As part of COLEACP’s Fit For Market programme, training in cost/benefit analysis for micro/small scale producers was organised for the Global Shea Alliance (GSA). The training aimed to build capacity in cost/benefit and cashflow-related calculations for the production of vegetables at producer level, and in how farmers can be assisted to budget for the various activities in the vegetable production cycle. To increase farmers’ level of professionalism, a budgeting and planning exercise has been set up using simple tools that are understandable and relevant to their daily activities.
GSA is a non-profit industry association with 500 members from 35 countries, including women’s groups, brands and retailers, suppliers and NGOs, that promotes industry sustainability, quality practices and standards, and demand for shea in food and cosmetics.
