Innovative farmers have developed local solutions aimed at overcoming the constraints of poverty and land degradation. A support process based on the Local Innovation Support Fund (LISF) was established to facilitate low-income farmers’ access to financing as well as to promote and improve their local innovation. It is an initiative from the project aimed at strengthening the Farmers’ Research Networks (FaReNe) in the regions of Ségou (Nabougou and Nampasso) and Mopti (Kiri and Pongonon).
