The main aim of the Support for the Valorisation of Agro-pastoral Products in the Southern and Northern Regions of Mali (SVAP) Joint Programme is to strengthen the capacity of small entrepreneurs, in particular women, in the Southern and Northern Regions of Mali, and support the valorisation of agro-pastoral products.

The SVAP Joint Programme’s objectives are:

  • Support women artisans through the valorisation of agro-pastoral products, namely: Shea fruit, leather, meat and milk of the camel;
  • Improve the quality of the aforesaid products;
  • Guarantee the regularity of their provisioning;
  • Develop women’s capacities for the production and the marketing of these products;
  • Provide investment services through integrated development programmes targeted at rural communities; and
  • Facilitate women’s access to credit, equipment, and market for the products, and increase women’s incomes.

The SVAP Joint Programme intervenes through training and information, establishment of pilot workshops for demonstration purposes for the production and marketing of agricultural commodities in different areas, the organization of groups and the provision of production facilities, development of marketing channels and product promotion on local and external markets. The groups of women beneficiaries are concentrated in the circles of selected regions of Segou and Sikasso in the south and north of Kidal.
