Twenty five years after the devastating genocide, Rwanda has made remarkable progress. However, around 68% of the population is employed in agriculture at a predominantly subsistence level. Rwanda’s 2020 vision aims to create 200,000 ‘off-farm’ jobs annually for (mostly) youth. SPARK has been contributing to this goal by making growth-orientated agribusiness entrepreneurs out of subsistence farmers. We support the creation of agricultural cooperatives, provide training for entrepreneurs and develop local value chains.
