This case study presents the partnership between the Barakadi rice cooperative located in N’Dana in Burkina Faso, accompanied by the IFAD Project to Support the Promotion of Agricultural Sectors (PAFPA), and the NAFASO company, which focuses on production and rice marketing. This document highlights the strengths and weaknesses in the implementation of the partnership, as well as the risks and opportunities for its sustainability.
This report is part of a series of experience-sharing reports produced by Inter-réseaux about partnerships between farmer organisations and businesses. The goal is to provide concrete examples showing companies (both national and international) working alongside farmer organisations in various production chains and African countries. What new forms of partnership are emerging? What issues do they raise? What best practices can we learn from them?
This capitalization is part of the cycle of reflection and work coordinated by Inter-réseaux on the topic of private sector involvement in African agriculture. You can read about all the Inter-réseaux activities on this topic HERE.
