Transforming communities in Northern Malawi

Case study of AgDevCo’s transformational impact through its investment in Tropha

Published by

Tropha is a commercial macadamia, chilli and paprika farmer in Northern Malawi. This study explores how Tropha is beginning to catalyse growth in the macadamia value chain through crowding-in and stimulating economic activity in rural communities.

As well as a direct impact, AgDevCo investments aim to have a transformational impact on the local economies in which they are located. These more indirect impacts are referred to as economic transformational change. These ripple effects can include economic spill-over activity, behavioural changes of other companies and farmers, and increases in economic activity along value chains.
