Presentation & Training of Farmers on the use of the Production Calendar
Welcome to the Jokkalante project, an initiative by the International Trade Centre (ITC) and MOTIE aimed at improving the livelihoods of women horticultural producers. The project follows a market-led approach that connects women farmers to markets, provides training on best agricultural practices, and promotes local production.
By working with actors across the agricultural value chain, including market federations, buyers, and transporters, the Jokkalante project aims to enhance income generation while providing direct support to women farmers. Funded by EIF, the project is committed to promoting sustainable agriculture practices and empowering women in the horticultural sector.

“Marketing is a challenge for every producer and the platform has come to address this challenge. It is really helping us because it is user-friendly. The platform has started yielding fruits. We have started using the platform to sell our produce.”
