Last mile distribution

The £47,635,000 Livelihoods and Food Security Programme (LFSP), which is funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), seeks to improve smallholder livelihoods and strengthen agribusinesses so that they can better implement inclusive business models. With many Zimbabweans involved in smallholder agriculture, they have the potential to help transform the country’s economic prospects.

LFSP therefore aspires to nurture value chains that offer climate resilience, pro-poor returns and which have sound market demand. It does so by co-creating and trailing inclusive business models with smallholders, agribusinesses and other market actors that offer promise of social and economic returns.
