Field Supervisor Job in Kenya - Monitoring & Evaluation

Duma Works is recruiting a Monitoring & Evaluations Field Supervisor for one of our clients: a non-profit organization that develops business solutions to poverty by linking people to information, capital and markets.

General Information: Food loss is a global issue that reduces household incomes and limits access to nutrition. More than 30 percent of global food production intended for human consumption is estimated to never reach consumers.  

Smallholder value chains in Sub-Saharan Africa have even higher loss rates, in some cases upwards of 50 percent. Loss rates in low-income countries mainly occur in the early and medium stages of the food supply chain, whereas very little food is discarded by consumers.

Since 1968, our client catalyzes high-impact, market-led partnerships that build competitive value chains, expand smallholder market access and create enduring economic opportunities.

Operating in more than 30 countries, the company works on a wide range of crops with a variety of partners, including multinational food companies, actively helping them identify, design, and implement scalable, sustainable supply chain strategies.

Our client is partnering with a similar foundation to implement the YieldWise scale up program which is aimed at reducing food loss among smallholder mango farmers in Kenya by increasing household incomes and expanding availability of safe and nutritious foods. 

The partnership will support food loss reduction by increasing farmer access to quality-improving technologies and support holistic market-driven solutions to ensure strengthened demand to absorb the increased mango supply. 

The project will aim to work with anchor buyers to create market pull for loss reduction by providing stable demand and ensure suppliers and farmers to adopt loss-reducing practices.
