Hodfa is the District Farmers Association of Hoima district; it is a member-based organisation that represents around 4150 farmers. The programme targets smallholder farm households in selected sub counties of Hoima District. These smallholder farmers are subsistence-oriented, own small pieces of land (between 1.5 to 2 acres) and employ simple farm tools and technology; the majority live in semi-permanent structures, have limited access to productive assets (including information and formal financial services) and are generally food and income insecure. The proposed project through its Participatory Agro-Enterprise Development approach, facilitate farmer groups in increased production, access to financial services, collective marketing and lobby/advocacy. Adequate financial services are provided by the rural bank Hofokam.
