Feed the Future in Kenya

About 75 percent of Kenyans derive all or part of their livelihoods from agriculture, which accounts for 18 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP). The United States Government Feed the Future initiative in Kenya will help 500,000 small-holder farmers and their families escape the cycle of poverty. This $250 investment supports innovative, private-sector-led solutions and government policies to strengthen value chains for dairy, horticulture, livestock, and staple crops to increase incomes of smallholder farmers, including women and youth.

In last year alone, the U.S. Government supported more than 1.7 million Kenyans, stimulated $15 million in sales, mobilized more than $340,000,000 in credit for agriculture and rural businesses, and provided short-term agricultural productivity training for more than 270,000 individuals, 56% of whom were women.
