Our Core Values are integrity, innovation, passion and equality.  These values are the foundation of Agwenda’s work ethics and culture in fulfilling our responsibilities with the communities we support: 


We support women farmers with improved agro-inputs on loan paid back in kind in a bid to improve productivity, food security and incomes


AWILI has partnered with the Centre for Agricultural Transformation (ATI) for 2 years to transform more “unbankable” rural women farmers. 

The stated aim of CAT is to support smallholder Malawian farmers in diversifying their incomes and livelihoods to reduce their reliance on tobacco farming.


In an effort to expand the scale, scope and effectiveness of engaging rural smallholder farmers, Agwenda relies on partners.
