About Us

The African Fertilizer and Agribusiness Partnership (AFAP) is a non-profit social enterprise that collaborates with public and private sector partners to develop and strengthen inputs value-chains, and in particular, to deepen and broaden fertilizer markets across Africa. AFAP is dedicated to designing and executing sustainable development projects that support policy and regulatory reforms, capacity building, financial credit provision, and data collection and market intelligence dissemination. By providing innovative and market-oriented business solutions, AFAP promotes the growth of the agricultural inputs and agribusiness value chain sectors.

AFAP’s approach involves a range of activities that contribute to the development of a robust inputs and fertilizer market ecosystem. These activities include, but are not limited to: identifying and addressing gaps in policy and regulation, facilitating skills development and knowledge transfer, introducing farming good practices and technologies to improve yield, providing access to credit and other financial services, and collecting “last mile” data and disseminating market intelligence. By integrating all of these activities, AFAP helps foster a more competitive, efficient, and sustainable inputs market system across the African continent.

With offices in nine African countries, including Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and its headquarters in South Africa, AFAP combines technical expertise, entrepreneurial innovation, and a unique, continental perspective.

Overall, AFAP’s work is essential in advancing agricultural productivity and food security across the continent. Through its partnerships and innovative business solutions, AFAP is helping transform Africa’s agricultural sector into a viable engine for economic AFAP Services growth and development.
