Sri Lanka - Smallholder Agribusiness Partnerships Programme (SAPP) – Recipes for Change (R4C) – February 2022
H.W. Dayarathna, a husband and father of three children, uses the flood irrigation method to water his watakolu (luffa or ridge gourd) plants. He also uses netting to protect his plantations. With what he grows, he produces enough to feed his family.
The Smallholder Agribusiness Partnerships Programme (SAPP) aims to raise incomes and improve the quality of diet of over 57,000 smallholder households in Sri Lanka. The program provides a platform for smallholder farmers to access financing and business training, while also helping them to form partnerships with each other and the private sector.
