Monetary value is often added in countries where crops like coffee beans are processed and not grown. Ugandan entrepreneur Andrew Rugasira, founder and CEO of Good African Coffee, presents the challenges he faced in building an African company that did both by partnering with thousands of poor Ugandan small farmers and providing them with needed training and incentives.

AgTalks is created from presentations recorded at events hosted by IFAD to present the human face of family farming and to bring forward the latest thinking, trends and research regarding policies and innovations in small-scale family farming.
