Welcome to Propcom Mai-karfi

Welcome to Propcom Mai-karfi (which means ‘stronger’) – a programme supported by the UK Government to make rural markets work for the poor.

By engaging with private sector partners and governments, Propcom Mai-karfi has set itself ambitious targets.

By 2018, Propcom Mai-karfi aims to raise the incomes of 650,000 people in northern Nigeria, half of them women.

Through its partnership approach, the programme also aims to stimulate private and public investment in the rural economy by more than £12.5 million.

Propcom Mai-karfi is an innovative, market-driven programme funded by UK aid that aims to reduce poverty in Nigeria.
