Project Overview

The IAA program aimed to increase production of agricultural products as well as amount of produce exported to Europe and other markets. Making Cents provided cooperatives development training – which combined aspects of our Cooperative Business Fundamentals and MicroPlan curricula – to producer cooperatives and associations in Morocco. The training provided detailed modules on the business cycle, basic record keeping, supply and demand, adding value to products, planning a marketing strategy, purchasing, costing/pricing products and services, negotiating and selling techniques, and selling for a profit. Our capacity-building work included the development of a business plan by 21 participating cooperatives.
