Togo: 300 breeders to get up to XOF1.5 billion under PASA’s additional phase

(Togo First) - Under its additional phase, the Agricultural Sector Support Project (PASA) backed 300 more breeders, providing them each XOF3.5 million. This follows an initial phase where 170 breeders benefited from the scheme’s support.

The subsidy, capped at XOF1.5 billion, aims at helping actors of this sector better sell their products. 

According to the ministry of animal production, PASA, in its additional phase, aims at “enabling small-scale breeders grow to become semi-modern breeders,” while in the long term, “these farmers should become real entrepreneurs, able to supply markets with their livestock (local poultry and small ruminants).”

The ministry also indicated that distribution of the subsidy has already begun. Actually, Out of 260 new beneficiaries who are to be backed by the scheme, 251 have already received the first tranche of the subsidy and have effectively started their activity.
