Financial Services Related Technical Assistance

Apart from providing finance the ZADT assesses technical support needs based on in-depth discussions and analysis of the requirements of target stakeholder groups (financial institutions, Agribusinesses/SMEs and smallholder farmers) who confirm and agree their requirements for technical support. Based on identified technical support needs and availability of funds, the ZADT identifies suitably qualified service providers to provide the capacity building and technical support required.

The support therefore involves:

  • Identifying and facilitating capacity development for Agribusinesses and SMEs intending to access ZADT investments.
  • Liaising with the Agribusiness and SMEs to identify the training needs of smallholder farmers that are linked to them.

The ZADT continues to mobilize resources for this support.
