Abstract

One of the policy goals in the U.S.’s Feed the Future agenda involves increasing the profitability of smallholder agriculture by increasing the investments in marketing channels. One program that falls under this rubric is Wula Nafaa in Senegal. This study demonstrates that the Wula Nafaa program led to changes in the employment pattern at the village level which imply increased wages in these villages.
