Target demographics: make the greatest impact on global poverty

Direct beneficiaries per year: 2.9 million people by targeting improvements in farms, businesses and industries. These efforts are creating a better future for families in the developing world.

Geographic areas served: poor communities throughout Africa, Latin America and Asia

Programs: those that address market failures – the constraints that prevent a market system from operating efficiently. These constraints may include skills, technologies, availability of information, market linkages, access to finance, infrastructure, governance or policies. We address market failures in three ways:

Develop capacity: We help individuals and communities acquire skills, share knowledge and apply the technologies needed to build successful farms and businesses.

Strengthen market connections: We coordinate among industry players and connect emerging businesses and farms to capital, networks and suppliers.

Improve the business environment: We encourage self-sustaining economic activity by addressing the policies, information and incentives that help markets function better.

We work with enterprising people in the developing world to build competitive farms, businesses and industries.
In 2012, TechnoServe's work benefited 2.9 million men, women and children based on an average of five people per family. This was accomplished by targeting improvements in farms, businesses and industries in more than 30 countries.
