Delivery on our commitments


SFSA continues making significant progress towards the Strategic Outcomes (SOs) outlined in our 2021–2025 strategy. As a result, we have increased some of our initial targets.




By 2025, we are now aiming for 20,000 SFSA-supported enterprises and $250 million in annual value from the use of SFSA-supported products. The previous targets were 15,000 and $100 million.



Our progress in 2023

report 2023

Outcome I: Smallholders get the tools they need


We focus on low-income smallholders, putting them at the heart of agri-food systems. Our work increases these farmers’ ability to choose, afford and use sustainable and innovative solutions to their challenges. We ensure suitable training and accompanying services to support the introduction of new technologies. We also push for a more robust “enabling environment”, for example, in finance, digitalization, and agricultural policy. All of this work is anchored in solid partnerships, notably between the public and private sectors.


>3.1m smallholders supported (up from 2.7m in 2022)


45% of the farmers are women (up from 29% in 2022)


$161m sales of SFSA-supported products & services (up from 142m in 2022)



Outcome II: Smallholders cope well with climate change

Agriculture both contributes to and suffers from global warming. There is an urgent need to improve the resilience of smallholder farming to climate change. As outlined in our Strategy, we are making Climate-Smart, Resilient Agriculture (CSRA) an integral part of the SFSA portfolio. We take an all-round approach, tailored to local contexts.

We are implementing various strategies and tools to increase farmers' resilience and ability to adapt. Increasing the likelihood of good harvests goes hand in hand with protecting smallholders against the consequences of crop failures. Longer-term contributions to resilience must be accompanied by more immediate economic incentives. Such financial benefits include higher productivity, lower production costs, and profitable sales of new rotation crops.

More than 790,000 farmers participated in SFSA capacity-building activities related to CSRA during 2023



Outcome III: Smallholders benefit from thriving markets

Sustainability has three pillars: environmental, social, and economic. Thriving markets are essential for sustainable improvements in livelihoods. In our case, these are markets in which smallholders can buy, rent and profitably sell, and in which businesses that serve them can thrive. SFSA links smallholders with markets for insurance, seed, and other elements of successful farming. We have made progress in stimulating rural entrepreneurship.


19,300 SFSA-supported enterprises during 2023 (up from 15k in 2022) (2023 STRATEGIC OUTCOME IS 20K)



On average, 57% of the entrepreneurs are women (up from 36% in 2022)


More than 11,500 jobs were created (up from 11k in 2022), and 78% of them for young people (up from 50% in 2022)



Current impact targets for 2025

  • At least a 20% net income increase for five million smallholder families
  •  Greater gender equality and youth opportunities across the agricultural sector (REACHED IN 2023)
  • Better nutrition, health and food security
