TechnoServe works with enterprising men and women in the developing world to build competitive farms, businesses, and industries. We help grow strong markets that create income and jobs in poor communities. By linking people to information, capital, and markets, we have helped millions to create lasting prosperity for their families and communities. With nearly 50 years of proven results, we believe in the power of private enterprise to transform lives by connecting people to information and market opportunities.

Our four core values embody our deepest beliefs and our highest aspirations - they serve as the guiding principles that drive and inform our organization at every level:


We share responsibility, ideas and tools in a spirit of connection, collaboration and candor.


We hold ourselves to high ethical standards, respect the rule of law and have honestly and openly.

Our Vision: We will be the most effective catalyst and partner for transformative, on-the-ground, market-based solutions to poverty. To achieve our vision and mission, TechnoServe focuses on market systems in the developing world that have:

A clear opportunity - an unmet demand for a product or service

The potential for scale - impacting significant numbers of families

We've grown exponentially over the past decade, designing interventions for greatest impact and striving to ensure that the farmers and businesses we work with continue to reap financial benefits long after a TechnoServe project ends. Our 2016 Impact Results tell our story:

$196M in increased revenue and wages generated as a result of TechnoServe's work

594,000 people and businesses who saw increased financial benefits as a result of our work, positively impacting the lives of 2.9 million people

$35M in loans and equity provided to farmers and businesses by the private sector with TechnoServe's facilitation.

TechnoServe's success in creating business solutions to poverty is due in large part to our talented and highly committed team. Governed by a 28-member international Board of Directors, we employ over 1400 people, 90% of whom are host-country nationals working in the field including Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Headquartered in Washington, DC, our 2018 budget is $86M.
