This case study, written by Ben Fowler and Candace Nelson, investigates a CRS-led project in northwestern Tanzania that combined savings groups with agricultural marketing structures. Linked primarily to the chickpea value chain, the case discusses the advantages and disadvantages of this model, ultimately suggesting lessons and considerations for practitioners considering such a model in their own context.
