Smallholder Poultry Agribusiness Development (SPADE)

Indigenous poultry smallholding has the potential to provide food, decent jobs, income, revenue, and improved livelihood of smallholders, businesses and government along its value chains. However, in rural Homabay, many have limited access to productive assets, skills, financial and market linkages, which restrict their productive ambitions.

Interestingly, roughly 106,000 households practice indigenous smallholding, mainly on subsistence level. Hen gifting or loaning is evidently common especially among grandparents and neighbors. In 2020 and 2021, we forged partnership with Aga Khan Foundation and Global Youth Mobilization and started SPADE project. The main goal was to empower smallholders through training and mentorship, field schools, contract farming, provision of assorted poultry kits (chicks, feeds, para-vet services), hatchery services, SACCO, open data source, and value chains. The project has 38 registered groups within Kwabwai ward.
