Project General Description

The Marketing Infrastructure Value Addition and Rural Finance Programme (MIVARFP) has been designed to upscale the successful activities implemented under the first phase Bank and IFAD financed Agricultural Marketing Systems Development Programme (AMSDP). The overall Programme comprises three major components namely: (i) Marketing Infrastructure and Systems Development; (ii) Rural Finance; and (iii) Programme Coordination. The project will be implemented over five years (2011-2016) and the overall programme cost is estimated at UA 105.49 million to be co-financed with IFAD and AGRA.

Project Objectives

The overall sector goal is to contribute to poverty reduction and accelerated economic growth on a sustainable basis in Tanzania through enhanced rural incomes and food security. The specific objective of the ADF component is to enhance rural incomes and food security through improved market access (feeder roads, market centres and storage, community management of infrastructure), increased share of value added of small- and medium-scale producers and processors including training and matching grants for equipment.


The 32 districts supported by the ADF have a combined population of about 6.1 million (1.2 million households) which will benefit directly or indirectly from the programme. Females constitute 84% of agriculture labour and 23% of heads of households. These benefits will positively impact the lives of women who account for about half of the 76% of rural folk engaged in agriculture.
