Increasing Funding for Agriculture Projects that Engage the Private Sector

In this new series we ask farmers, project leaders, NGOs, journalists, policy makers, and funders where they would like to see more agricultural  funding directed. In this post, Rueban Banda, USAID PROFIT Field Operations Manager in Zambia, explains why he would like to see more funding support projects that connect small-scale farmers to the private sector.
