    Agriculture Growth Program-Agribusiness and Market Development: Baseline Survey

    The Agricultural Growth Program (AGP) was a collaborative initiative of the Government of Ethiopia, the World Bank, and multiple international donors, including the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The AGP promoted economic growth in four high-rainfall regions of Ethiopia with strong agricultural potential -- Oromia; Amhara; Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region (SNNPR); and Tigray. The AGP-Agribusiness and Market Development (AGP-AMDe) project was one of the three pillars of the AGP and focused specifically on making agriculture profitable. Its goal was to sustainably reduce poverty and hunger by improving productivity and competitiveness of value chains that offered job and income opportunities to rural households. Kimetrica developed the project’s monitoring and evaluation framework for the initiative. This included aligning the project’s performance management plan with results indicators and customising Kimetrica’s commercial Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) software, ki-projects™, to manage all aspects of the project’s performance monitoring requirements. In addition, Kimetrica carried out a 2,000-household baseline survey. Its data laid the groundwork for the monitoring of and reporting on the project's results.

    Production, Finance and Improved Technology Plus (PROFIT+): M&E Services, Baseline Survey, and Impact Evaluation

    The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Production, Finance and Improved Technology Plus (PROFIT+) program was aimed to advance economic growth by helping smallholder farmers produce and sell more of their commodities. Building on previous USAID support activities, PROFIT+ worked to enhance input supply and foster output markets. The project’s goal was to increase productivity and incomes of 200,000 targeted smallholder farmers by as much as 30 percent. Kimetrica bolstered the program by providing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) tools, management, training, and support. Using Kimetrica’s commercial M&E software, ki-projectsTM, performance data was collected remotely, using handheld computer devices, as well as traditional survey approaches. Kimetrica’s survey team also managed a baseline survey, which provided the foundation for the project’s performance measures, and an impact evaluation of various program inputs.

    Tanzania Staples Value Chain (NAFAKA)

    Tanzania Staples Value Chain (NAFAKA) was a United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded program to improve smallholder farmers’ productivity and profitability in maize and rice value chains in targeted districts of Tanzania. Working with rural communities and the Tanzanian Ministry of Agriculture, the program focused on improving productivity, increasing incomes, improving competitiveness and trade, and fostering an increase in investment and innovation. As the principal partner on results assessment, Kimetrica conducted a 2,000-household baseline survey and designed the project monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system, based on Kimetrica’s commercial M&E software, ki-projects™.  Kimetrica’s M&E team worked to build the capacity of project and partner staff in results based management and principles of M&E, including the design of results frameworks, monitoring questionnaires, data analysis and M&E reporting. The results framework and M&E tools provided critical input to program management decisions that were focused on achieving the greatest results with the resources at hand.
