I am a Zimbabwean agricultural expert with a master's degree in Agricultural Development and a professional certificate in Financing Agricultural Value Chains. I have over 20 years’ work experience in agriculture, value chains, livelihoods, financing and development. I have supported development projects funded by such donors as USAID (OFDA, FtF & FFP), USDA, DFID, EU, BMGF and private company buyers in East Africa region and Zimbabwe to strengthen business linkages of smallholder producers with input suppliers, financial institutions, extension and other value chain services providers for increasing productivity, build buyer relationships of smallholder producers with traders, processors, wholesalers and exporters for promoting agricultural trade, and improve agriculture policy, legislative and regulatory enabling environment, with ultimate outcomes to increase incomes, improve food security and build resilience of producers to better mitigate climate change and market risks.
