The Mtukula Agriculture Enterprise Fund

The MAEF is an initiative aimed at enabling smallholder farmers in southern Africa to develop enterprising solutions to the challenges they currently face. Created by Self Help Africa, the Mtukula* fund will operate as a sister fund to the Maendeleo Agricultural Enterprise Fund in East Africa.

Self Help Africa’s new Mtukula Fund is providing grant support this year to four innovative development projects designed to empower women by fostering enterprise development and agricultural diversification in southern Africa. Click here to find out more about 2012′s projects.

*Mtukula is a Southern African Chichewa word meaning “catalyst for development or improvement in household wellbeing”.
