The Local Network in Rwanda was established in 2024 and is led by the Rwanda Institute of Cooperatives, Entrepreneurships, and Microfinance (RICEM). It aims to build from Rwanda’s current Agriculture Strategy (2018-2024), which has a strong focus on agricultural market development, especially high value crops in the horticultural sector. The changing market system requires farmers’ adherence to standards for access to global, regional, and national markets.


AMEA members seek to address the challenges preventing farmers from accessing reliable markets and well-performing public and private sector services, thus, enabling famers organizations and Agri-SMEs to play their critical role towards economic and social development of farmers in Rwanda.
