USAID programs work with local authorities and private businesses to advance stability through economic growth.
USAID is improving the investment climate as well as creating jobs in livestock, farming and agribusiness, energy production, and other sectors. To improve the investment climate, USAID conducted surveys to identify impediments to growth and address them through policy reform.
USAID assists in improving the environment for local businesses and investors. USAID provided business skills training to youth and the private sector, gave investment capital to deserving private enterprises to address a lack of capital in the market place, and supported local farmers and veterinary institutions to increase agriculture production and protect the health of livestock.
