Project General Description

The Project for the Development of Youth Entrepreneurship in Agriculture and Agri-Food in Senegal (PEJAS), which was the subject of a request for preparatory funds from the African Development Bank, aims to give a majority of young women and men living in rural or urban areas opportunities to access viable employment, increase their income and improve their food security through profitable enterprises, integrated into the promising agricultural sectors. The project comprises the following three components: (i) Development of youth entrepreneurship in the agricultural and agri-food value chains; (ii) Facilitation of access to finance for young project leaders; (iii) Project coordination and management. The objective of this preparation is to carry out preliminary studies in order to improve the quality at the entrance of the agricultural and agri-food entrepreneurship development project. Its implementation should make available the available baseline studies as well as some of the operational tools needed to start the project.

Project Objectives

The objective of the project is to create the conditions for the emergence of successful agricultural and agri-food enterprises by young people and the development of a political, organizational and institutional framework conducive to the promotion and growth of these enterprises.


The beneficiaries of the project should be young women and men living in rural or urban areas as well as actors in the agriculture and agri-food sector in Senegal.
