Foreword
CARE Zambia’ ADAPT project is increasing the access of 91,000 remote, rural smallholder farmers
to quality, affordable inputs by creating a network of 500 agro-dealers. To achieve this, one major project activity include conducting business management and technical training of recruited agro-dealers in the remote areas. The main objective of this training is to respond to the capacity gaps of the agrodealers that were identified during the training needs assessment so as to strengthen their business management skills so that they can better manage their businesses as well as poise them for sustained further growth. The project also collaborated well with private sector (input suppliers) in trying to achieve this objective. This training manual is to be used as a step by step guide by anyone conducting a training for agrodealer development works or even by the agrodealer themselves who wish to update/refresh their knowledge in agrodealer business development. It is through the use of this manual that has  built agrodealer skills and confidence to run their businesses which in turn has resulted in input suppliers gaining confidence in the starter agrodealers that has resulted in viable and sustained linkages between agrodealers and suppliers. This has also resulted in a better service to the farmer our ultimate target, in terms of variety, quality seed brands, affordability and availability within their location. Our appreciation go to all those involved in putting up this manual together. It is our hope that this manual will provide guidance to all those seeking to develop agrodealer works in Zambia.
