Descriptif _ The Northern Rural Growth Program (NRGP) is an integrated pro-poor socio-economic development program which focuses on four commodity windows using the Value Chain approach. The commodity windows are : Industrial Crops (Soya, Maize, sorghum) ; Fruits and Vegetables (papaya, Okra Chilli) ; Women’s Crops (Shea, Sesame, Moringa) ; Livestock (Guinea Fowls, Small Ruminants). Under the Livestock window, the NRGP is seeking to assist guinea fowl and small ruminant farmers in northern Ghana to develop viable, scalable and sustainable businesses. In line with this goal, it aims at designing and implementing value chain development interventions that will increase farmer incomes and generate catalytic effects in the provision of goods and services through public -private partnerships.
