This program aims to increase economic growth and employment in Burkina Faso through improved competitiveness and productivity in the private sector. Based on experience from previous agricultural programs the focus is on small and medium sized enterprises and agricultural organizations. The program consists of two components : Component 1: Support to the private sector. The goal is to improve of growth opportunities for small - and medium-sized agricultural enterprises by strengthening consultancy services, support to green initiatives and access to finance. Small and growing agricultural entreprises receives advice and support in order for them to access private financing, e.g. bank loans and investments from investment funds. From 2017, the component is implemented by a private operator. Until 2017, the component was implemented by the parastatal organization, Maison de l' Entreprise of Burkina Faso. There are also credit lines and a guarantee fund available under this component. Component 2: Support the the public sector. The aim is to improve the framework conditions for small - and medium-sized agricultural enterprises through support to policy and norms as well as the contstruction of 230 warehouses, meat markets and other infrastructures. As for component 1, the program works with all value chains with growth potential. As for component 2, efforts are focused on regional and local level and target five out of Burkina Faso's 13 regions. These are the Sahel , Centre Est, Est, North, and Centre-Ouest . The value chains targeted are corn, vigna beans, beef cattle, Shea nuts and gum Arabic.


A number of risks have been identified in the formulation of the program, such as risk of reduced demand for advice and financing, sluggishness in the selection and implementation of infrastructure, hesitation among companies due to complex rules and procedures and the risk of natural disasters. This has been taken into account, in the program's organization, among others through a comprehensive technical assistance.
