Diversifying Malagasy farmers’ income
Ceffel is a specialized farmers’ organization, created in 2006 at the initiative of Fifata and Fert, to meet the demand of farmers of diversifying their incomes on farms through the production of fruits and vegetables.
Over the past 15 years, Ceffel has been recognized as a key player in the sector and in agricultural training in Madagascar. Being driven by farmers and deeply anchored to the Fifata group enables Ceffel to respond in a concrete way to the needs of Malagasy farmers. Its 20 hectar farm is an essential support for training and learning by doing.
