Introduction

The U.S.-Pakistan Partnership for Agricultural Market Development (AMD) is a USAID funded, four year project which aims to improve the ability of Pakistan’s commercial agriculture and livestock sectors to compete in international and national markets in the four target product lines; meat, high value and off season vegetables, mangoes and citrus. AMD will act as a catalyst for development and investment in target product lines by actively promoting cooperation and coordination amongst the value chain actors and ancillary service providers. AMD’s implementation strategy is underpinned by a strictly commercial and market driven approach with a clear focus on strengthening market access for its partner organizations, and support marketing and sales efforts, both nationally and internationally. The objective of the AMD project is to encourage investments in the four target product lines through matching grants and empower stakeholders by developing synergies among them to accomplish together what they cannot do alone. AMD will support upgrading, streamline supply chains, optimize profit margins, increase participation of women entrepreneurs, and ultimately help make Pakistani meat, high value and off season vegetables, mangoes and citrus more profitable and more competitive.

The Program

Through this EOI, AMD is seeking to select up to nine (9) women entrepreneurs related to the Meat and High Value and Off-Season Vegetables product lines (Green Chilies, Bitter Gourd, Squashes, Okra, Cucumber, Leafy Vegetables, Spring Onions, Broccoli, Green Peas, French Beans, Luffa, Tomatoes, Carrots, Colocasia, Bitter Criss).

AMD will also bear all costs of the women entrepreneurs including: visa fees, cost of airfare, lodging, meals and incidentals expenses and local transport. The selected women entrepreneurs will be responsible for providing AMD with all the required information as per deadlines established, failure to do which will result in disqualification. 

Selection is on a rolling basis until up-to nine qualified candidate applications have been received, reviewed and selected.
