Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) Manager, AMPPLIFY


Everyone deserves the opportunity to build a better future. This simple idea has been at the heart of TechnoServe’s work around the world for over 50 years. TechnoServe is a pioneer in leveraging the power of business and markets to create sustainable pathways out of poverty.

The low-income communities in which we work are full of enterprising people. Their small-scale farms and businesses are the keys to economic development. But they face many challenges: low literacy, lack of access to jobs and markets, unpredictable political dynamics and, increasingly, the effects of climate change. For many women and young people, the challenges are even more daunting. Working with TechnoServe staff, people around the world are lifting themselves out of poverty. The results are amazing…when incomes increase and living conditions for families get better, they are able to access health care and education previously out of reach. Communities and even whole countries are better off.


Addressing Mango Production and Post-harvest Loss and Increasing Fish Yields (AMPPLIFY) is a five-year project funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture under the Food for Progress Program that will facilitate a resilient and growing trade of mango and fish, sustained by profitable farmers making ongoing productivity and climate-smart investments to maintain the health and performance of their farms across Côte d’Ivoire. Over the next five years, the project will use a facilitative market-based approach that leverages the resources of the private sector to drive incentives and behavior change throughout the market system, which can achieve improved productivity, trade, and food security through the provision of high-quality, accessible goods and services for farmers and other value chains (VC) participants.
