Measuring What Matters
Fintrac uses a combination of critical indicators to measure how our interventions affect farmers and allied enterprises. We designed the Client Impact and Results Information System (CIRIS) specifically for agriculture and rural development programs. This state-of-the-art tool allows our staff and partners to track results and optimize performance.
Deploying Powerful Teams
Our teams have extensive knowledge of the latest field technologies to strengthen every link in the farm-to-market-to-table chain. Highly trained in Fintrac methodologies, they include agronomists, economists, nutrition experts, postharvest handling and processing technologists, livestock specialists, experts in climate change and natural resource management, and market development and logistics specialists.
Building Local Capacity
Fintrac coordinates technical assistance delivery to farmers and local enterprises through partner alliances with commercial enterprises, national and regional governments, educational and research institutes, NGOs, producer organizations, and industry associations. We also have established loan facilities, grant mechanisms, and extension courses to support these local service providers and improve their timeliness, effectiveness, and sustainability.
Developing the Value Chain
Fintrac provides technical assistance and training at every point along the value chain, from varietal trials and technology innovations to product, storage, and market development. We work closely with seed and other input suppliers, processors, traders, banks, exporters, freight forwarders, supermarkets and distributors to strengthen commercial synergies, integrate smallholders into supply channels, and improve competition. In addition to technical and logistics support, we offer guidance in investment strategies, business and financial planning, certification options, and contract negotiations.
