MOLI in Kakheti
In 2011, the SDC started a new project in one of the agricultural regions of Georgia, Kakheti, with an aim to improve the livestock market system. The project “Market Opportunities for Livelihood improvement” was implemented by the Swiss HEKS-EPER in 8 municipalities of the region. In particular, it worked with businesses and institutions from which small-scale farmers receive inputs and services, or sell their produce to. In November 2018, the project was closed having achieved its set results; notably, 82 enterprises and 27’000 farmers benefitted from the project; the productivity of dairy farmers increased by 30% and that of meat-producing farmers - by 40%; 44 VET pharmacies located in Kakheti region were fully equipped and provide improved services to 36’000 farmers.
