REAL PEOPLE, REAL PARTNERSHIPS
This Scottish Government funded Aquaculture Enterprise project is helping entrepreneurial fish farmers in southern Malawi to become standalone, financially viable aquaculture businesses.
It provides: loans for initial feed and fish; regular technical and small business support; visits during the production cycle; then market chain support, allowing them to sell their fish for profit.
Effective partnerships are key in this project: this approach is working well, with increasing numbers of individuals paying back their loans and making profits.
Just one of the thousands of people-to-people partnerships between Scotland and Malawi, working across all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
