The Markets and Agricultural Trade Improvement Project (MATIP) aims to boost markets in 21 municipalities and urban communities in Uganda. This intervention is based on the findings of a feasibility study commissioned by the Government of Uganda, in March 2008, to review and assess local markets’ infrastructure and functional status across the country. The study concluded that markets throughout Uganda are poorly managed, in a state of disrepair and overcrowded with merchants, which far outnumber their capacity. On the basis of this observation and following a request from the Government of Uganda, the African Development Bank approved a loan of UA 108 million in 2009 to finance the project’s first phase (MATIP-I). MATIP-I enabled the Government to rebuild seven major modern markets in Kampala, Jinja, Mbale, Gulu, Lira, Hoima, and Fort Portal. MATIP-II is therefore an extension of MATIP-I and involves the reconstruction of 11 additional markets. This second phase focuses on improving marketplace infrastructure, adding value and facilitating trade (including capacity building) in nine municipalities and two urban communities located in the four regions of the country, namely Entebbe (Kitoro), Masaka, Mbarara, Arua, Moroto (Lopedru), Soroti and Tororo on the one hand, and Kasese, Busia, Kitgum and Lugazi, on the other hand. MATIP II will be executed over five years (2015-2020) at an estimated cost of USD 93.73 million.
The project's overall goal is to contribute to poverty reduction and economic growth in Uganda through improved selling of farm produce and other commodities. The specific objective is to improve marketplace economic and social infrastructure, so as to stimulate production and sales of basic agricultural produce, promote merchants’ growth income, reduce post-harvest losses, and increase job creation and customer satisfaction.
The main beneficiaries will be the 16,951 currently registered vendors (at least 60% of whom are women) whose number is expected to increase by the time the project is inaugurated, after the markets’ reconstruction. Indirect beneficiaries would be some 900,000 households living in the market areas.
