Associate Program Manager (Benin)

Organization: TechnoServe

Deadline: 15th OCT 2017

TechnoServe works with enterprising people in the developing world to build competitive farms, businesses and industries. We are a nonprofit organization that develops business solutions to poverty by linking people to information, capital and markets. Our work is rooted in the idea that given the opportunity, hardworking men and women in even the poorest places can generate income, jobs and wealth for their families and communities. With more than four decades of proven results, we believe in the power of private enterprise to transform lives. Responding to high demand in the global cashew market and the superior quality of their raw product, Benin’s cashew cultivation has expanded more than tenfold in the past two decades. Yet processing capacity and other value chain inefficiencies have kept the sector from reaching its potential, and Benin still exports 92 percent of its cashew as unprocessed raw nut.

Started in September 2015, the BeninCajù project, implemented in partnership with Catholic Relief Services, is strengthening and expanding the cashew sector into a more productive, competitive, sustainable, and inclusive economic growth engine for the people of Benin. BeninCajù seeks to create nearly 4,000 jobs in the cashew processing industry – 70 percent of which are for women – and improve the income of almost 50,000 producers, which represents a quarter of all cashew farmers in Benin. The program will serve twelve of the country’s cashew producing municipalities and support at least 10 processing plants.
