A Replicable Business Model (RBM) using a revolving seed fund and managed by cooperatives was introduced to increase the supply of certified seed of improved teff varieties in South Wollo zone, Amhara region, in the Ethiopian highlands. After two years of operation, a household survey was conducted in the 2018-19 crop year to evaluate the RBM in terms of social inclusion and the commercialisation of teff.
The general objective of this report is to assess the performance of the RBM in terms of social inclusion and impact. Specifically, the objectives are to:
1. Compare the poverty status of participating and non-participating households; and
2. Measure the impact of the RBM on the commercialization of teff.
