The SDU is supporting Shares!Uganda, an aggregator, processor and exporter of organic agricultural commodities sourced from smallholder farmers in Northern Uganda. With the help of the SDU, Shares!Uganda is expanding the number of organic-certified farmers it procures from and strengthening its extension services with new trainings, demo plots, and additional resources for extension officers. The partnership is also increasing access to finance for smallholder farmers through the establishment of Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLAs) as well as the digitisation of Shares’ buying and certification processes.
