Commercial Farm Service Program Launches First Farm Service Center in Ethiopia

The Commercial Farm Service Program (CFSP), funded by USAID and implemented by CNFA, launched its first Farm Service Center today in Bishoftu, Ethiopia. This is one out of six centers that will be up and running by the end of this two-year pilot project. Aimed at improving smallholder productivity, food security and incomes, the FSCs are a “one-stop-shop” that provide smallholder farmers with agricultural inputs, services and technologies to help them produce surpluses and become better linked to end markets. CNFA has developed farm service center networks in Afghanistan, Georgia, Moldova and Romania.
