Fintrac, a woman owned and US-based consulting company develops agricultural solutions to end hunger and poverty. For more than 20 years, we have worked with local and global partners to increase production, improve postharvest handling, add value, and develop markets and competitive value-chains for the world’s most vulnerable farmers and communities.
By teaching farmers proven technologies and practices, we increase yields to improve nutrition, generate income, and build industries.
Since 2000, Fintrac has:
- Increased incomes for 700,000 smallholder farmers
- Created more than 275,000 jobs in agricultural value chains
- Put 350,000 hectares of land under sustainable practices
- Leveraged more than $200 million in new investment
- Generated $830 million in agricultural sales
- Contributed to the food security of 4.5 million people
Measuring What MattersFintrac uses a combination of critical indicators to measure how our interventions affect farmers and allied enterprises. We designed the Client Impact and Results Information System (CIRIS) specifically for agriculture and rural development programs. This state-of-the-art tool allows our staff and partners to track results and optimize performance.
Deploying Powerful TeamsOur teams have extensive knowledge of the latest field technologies to strengthen every link in the farm-to-market-to-table chain. Highly trained in Fintrac methodologies, they include agronomists, economists, nutrition experts, postharvest handling and processing technologists, livestock specialists, and market development and logistics specialists.
Building Local CapacityFintrac coordinates technical assistance delivery to farmers and local enterprises through partner alliances with commercial enterprises, national and regional governments, educational and research institutes, NGOs, producer organizations, and industry associations. We also have established loan facilities, grant mechanisms, and extension courses to support these local service providers and improve their timeliness, effectiveness, and sustainability.
