The Jobs Fund will open its new funding round on 12 January 2015. The round will focus on the agriculture sector, with specific focus on subsectors that continue to require labour intensive farming practices.
The Jobs Fund is seeking innovative approaches that will provide comprehensive support packages to smallholder farmers. This support must address constraints that hinder smallholder productivity and commercial viability. These constraints include but are not limited to: access to appropriate finance, markets, infrastructure and integration into the existing agricultural value chains.
This round will open on 12 January 2015 and close on 28 February 2015. No extensions will be granted.
