Power to Producers: Building a network of dairy enterprises owned by local farmers’ groups in Haiti
Lèt Agogo, a project initiated and led by a Haitian NGO, Veterimed, has created a network of small dairy enterprises that process milk and cheese products for domestic markets. Key to the project’s success has been the involvement of local farmers’ associations, who supply the dairies with milk; in return, farmers receive technical and material support and benefit from collective inputs and marketing. As a result, their incomes have risen and women in particular have been able to play a more prominent economic role. The next step is to scale up the network nationally, using a franchise model that will enable shared ownership between producers, processors, and the brand holder, and which will transfer management responsibility for individual dairies to the producers themselves.
