Strengthening the capacity of local farmer organizations to meet the fruit and vegetable requirements of the oil company and regional markets.

Cabinda Agribusiness Development Alliance (CADA)

The Cabinda Gulf Oil Company—a consortium of oil companies including Chevron—together with USAID and ACDI/VOCA formed the Cabinda Agribusiness Development Alliance (CADA) in Angola. The purpose of the CADA was to leverage private sector and U.S. donor funds with ACDI/VOCA’s agribusiness development expertise. Through the development of farmer-owned agribusiness associations, CADA aims to increase the household wealth for many families Cabinda Province in Angola.

The initial five-year phase of CADA focused on strengthening the capacity of local farmer organizations to meet the fruit and vegetable requirements of both the oil company (which provided many meals for its employees in the remote province of Cabinda) and regional markets. USAID and ACDI/VOCA assisted the farmer associations to strengthen business and market linkages for targeted cash crops. The project ended in May 2007. In May 2007, the CABGOC funded project ended and empowered 6,226 beneficiaries, 30 percent of whom were women.
