Abstract

The study evaluates an intervention designed to improve the livelihood of chronically-food insecure households with limited land holdings. The returns to the different stakeholders are estimated and a distribution analysis is conducted. The analysis suggests that the deterministic scenario will yield a very positive net present value for all the proposed commodities (potato, onion, and tomatoes). To reduce the risk borne by the farmers, however, the structure of the financing mechanism must be altered to allow the project to operate independently from the other donor’s financial support projects operating in the area. The loan size should be increased to allow the participating households to purchase irrigation pumps. The loan tenor should also be increased to facilitate the loans’ repayments.
