Today the African Fine Coffees Association interviews the new TechnoServe Global Coffee Director, Mr. Patrick Stewart
1. Congratulations on your new position! So tell us about TechnoServe and how does it work?
TechnoServe was founded as a non-profit organization in 1968 with the idea that when people in developing countries have access to information, capital and markets, they can lift themselves, their families and their communities out of poverty. We work with enterprising people to build competitive farms, businesses and industries.
Our approach is to harness the power of the private sector to help farmers and entrepreneurs transform their lives. On a practical level, that means that we always start by identifying market opportunities that can bring lasting benefits to the women and men we work with, and then we help to equip them with the tools they need to seize those opportunities.
