High quality inputs such as fingerlings, commercial feeds and aqua chemicals are key factors in commercially-profitable fish farming. Small fish farmers however lack access to these inputs: private companies usually cater only for medium and large fish farmers. Even when small farmers do get improved access to quality inputs, their knowledge of effective culturing techniques tends to be limited, and improper post-harvest management practices can result in considerable wastage of the fish produced.

Bangladesh’s craft sector employs a large number of women. Tapping into the sector’s potential for women’s economic empowerment, Katalyst identified that by providing independent craft producers and poor women artisans with better access to skills development, knowledge of effective production technologies, and market linkages, they can increase their income and lift themselves out of poverty.

Parul Begum

Empresa

Many women in rural Bangladesh grow vegetables in their homestead gardens to support their families. Despite the scope which exists for vegetable cultivation, in char (islets) regions this is rather limited, as many farmers are unaware of its profit-earning potential; they also lack access to quality inputs such as seeds which are genetically of good quality. To increase awareness and availability of quality vegetable seeds, Katalyst partnered with Lal Teer Seed Ltd, a leading Bangladeshi seed company, to extend its market in the char areas.
