Project General Description

The Technical Assistance Project for the Promotion of Young Agricultural Entrepreneurs (PJEA) aims to promote a private agricultural sector that supports the development of the sector at the local level and promotes the creation of employment for young people. The PJEA aims to promote youth entrepreneurship by giving them the keys to success, support and technical support needed to create their very small agricultural enterprises (TPE). This is a pilot operation to support young agricultural entrepreneurs for a period of 24 months. This pilot operation will help define a kind of practical guide for the creation of any young company in the sector. Its implementation envisages the promotion of an incubation structure through four components which are: (i) Program formulation and selection of young agricultural entrepreneurs (JEA); (ii) Training, installation and accompaniment of JPOs; (iii) Evaluation and replicability of the JEA promotion model; and (iv) Coordination and audit of the operation.

Project Objectives

The general objective of the project is to promote inclusive development and the promotion of local agricultural services for a better productivity of the agricultural sector and the integration of young people to play a driving role in the local dynamics of development. More specifically, the project aims to support young entrepreneurs in agriculture and define the rules and mechanisms needed to develop a model to support the creation of very small agricultural enterprises (TPE). The Specific Objectives of the operation are: i) to combat the unemployment of young graduates and to promote employment opportunities; ii) Install 160 viable micro-enterprises through training, integration and technical advice to young agricultural entrepreneurs (JEA) able to contribute to improving the productivity of the agricultural sector.

The project is aimed at young graduates in agriculture or green entrepreneurship (individuals or groups of young promoters). The field of beneficiaries of the call for projects is also extended to young people under 40 years of age.
