The Annual Household Survey (AHS) tests the validity of MUSIKA’s theory of change for generating impact at household level, on an annual basis.
The data offers insights on what the potential effect of MUSIKA’s interventions have been at household-level. It points at areas where improvements are needed. It involved both MUSIKA participant groups and non-participant groups of farmers.
The survey covers six provinces and three thematic areas:
- Business and finance
- Agricultural diversification
Generally the participant group noted higher changes in technical information access, better adoption rates of technologies, higher rates of productivity and incomes than the non-participant group.
MUSIKA stimulates private investment in the agricultural market. It focuses on the smallholder and emerging farmer sectors.
