Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action — helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within. Mercy Corps’ AgriFin Digital Farmer (ADF II) program will work to reach five million smallholder farmers across Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Nigeria - 40% of whom are women - living on less than $2.00 per day, who will utilize DFS and/or DIS as a result of this project. In partnership with Bill and Melinda Gates and Bayer Foundations, ADF 2 seeks to support the expansion of digitally enabled services to 5 million smallholder farmers, delivered by growing ecosystems of diverse service providers and building farmer income, productivity, and resilience by 50% while reaching 40% women. ADF II will continue to target farmers who work across a wide variety of crop, livestock and fish value chains, most of whom have diversified production systems growing multiple crops for both home consumption and sale. The program is expected to have positive impacts on farmers and direct partners providing services to farmers and ecosystem actors adopting learnings from program activities. Results and learning from this body of work can be found on the www.mercycorpsagrifin.org website.
One of the main deliverables that we expect to produce as part of the ADF II program is the development of a sustainability plan to ensure the program’s sustainability beyond the four-year grant. One key area of focus for this piece of work is the design and development of the ADFII sustainability plan. As part of this ADFII sustainability plan, the AgriFin Program also plans to expand into new geographies, the program and get the opportunity to support partners expand their reach into new markets and support burgeoning agritech and fintech. However, as part of this program, the approach needs to ensure that the growth and expansion is sustainable, without adversely affecting the scaling support the program is currently engaged in.
The ADF II sustainability plan is closely aligned with the Mercy Corps Agrifin Global Expansion Strategy, and the outputs from this strategy will provide additional guidance and inputs into the ADF II sustainability plan.
Purpose / Project Description:
The purpose of this engagement is to engage a consultant for the development of the ADFII sustainability plan informed by the review and revision of the AgriFin Global Expansion Strategy. This will be done by assessing the various income generation and fund streams, revising the country assessment and readiness index metrics, updating the data for the assessment, and recommending countries to support an ADFII sustainable expansion. The consultant will validate the strategy with the AgriFin team and will develop the implementation plan (AgriFin expansion strategy implementation roadmap) that will help the AgriFin team to implement the expansion plan.
The consultant will engage with the AgriFin team across the following key activities:

VillageReach transforms health care delivery to reach everyone, so that each person has the health care needed to thrive. We develop solutions that improve equity and access to primary health care**.** This includes making sure products are available when and where they are needed and primary health care services are delivered to the most under-reached.
