MEDA's Approach to Pro-Poor Value Chain and Enterprise Development

MEDAs Approach to Pro-Poor Value Chain and Enterprise DevelopmentFor nearly sixty years, Mennonite Economic Development Associates (MEDA) has created business solutions to poverty around the world. Rooted in faith values, MEDA firmly believes that unleashing entrepreneurship is the best way to alleviate poverty. And stands by its conviction that the work is not done until it is proven to be sustainable, replicable, scalable and measureable.

Come, listen and learn about MEDA’s pro-poor value chain and M4P approaches in agriculture and women’s economic development. Ann will provide an overview of MEDA’s work in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Ethiopia to show how their projects improve business opportunities in competitive and sustainable ways. This will also give you a glimpse into the case studies and topics covered in the upcoming SMDP course “Pro-Poor Enterprise and Value Chain Development (PPEVCD)” being held November 11-15, 2013 in Tanzania.
