The USAID’s Trade and Investment Hub workshop in West Africa is geared towards enhancing private sector competitiveness through a market-centric approach that focuses on increasing the productivity and profitability of smallholder farmers in Nigeria. The project also promotes partnerships with various firms across diverse sectors through a co-investment grant facility that seeks to boost private sector productivity, profitability, and competitiveness. Sara Werth, the Acting Mission Director at USAID, expressed her pride in the results achieved so far, which were made possible through collaboration with private sector partners and local and national governments in the region. She also emphasized the importance of continued collaboration and building new connections for sustainable economic growth, financial inclusion, and climate resilience.

Partner companies have also benefitted from the co-investment grant program, which has allocated $82.6 million and generated $463 million in sales while creating over 60,000 job opportunities. These efforts have made a significant contribution to the economic well-being of the region, thanks to the Hub’s innovative approach and strong partnerships.
