Abstract:
Members from different farmer groups that received establishment support by three intervention projects, and non-members were interviewed. By calculating the average weighted scores the influence of intervention projects on potential factors for the success or failure of farmer groups devoted to pig production and marketing was evaluated.Findings showed that farmers assigned reasons for group success to external project interventions, while failures were attributed to internal factors. Depending on the projects approach members mentioned training or in-kind payments as a key reason for success. The potential reasons for failure were related to the missing commitment of members and leader board.
