Job Description

Alliance Agriculture is a private-sector-led partnership managed by ACDI/VOCA, a non-profit organization based in Washington, DC, to pilot an integrated network of input supply, buyers, and smallholder farmers around shared use center pivot irrigation schemes in Nigeria. The Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL), an agency of the Central Bank of Nigeria, and the Federal Ministry of Water Resources, invited Alliance Agriculture to implement its FAM-SMART initiative. This initiative will create opportunities for Nigerian smallholder farmers to become naira millionaires, climb out of poverty, and in so doing, increase Nigeria’s capacity to meet the food needs of its 180 million people. Alliance Agriculture held a launch event and workshop at NIRSAL’s headquarters in Abuja, and drew a number of private partners.
