Products and Services

Business Development Services

The firm promotes the development of businesses through provision of technical and managerial services to upcoming entrepreneurs in the field of agri-business.

Creating a viable value-added agricultural business involves finding an idea or opportunity in the marketplace and then building a viable business to take advantage of the opportunity. This requires going through a process or series of steps. Although this is not a hard and fast process, there are steps that you need to take – and you need to take them in order. 
Noble provides these services through the following steps/initiatives to ensure success of many of the agri-businesses engaged in i.e. Maximize internal efficiencies, opportunity scoping, resource situation assessment, technical and economic feasibility assessment and preparing for implementation.
Noble seeks to support value-adding business initiatives that allow producers to be rewarded for performing activities that have traditionally been performed by others downstream or fulfil a need downstream that has never been met. Value adding initiatives have the potential to improve producer’s revenues and impacting positively on income levels which will result in reduced poverty levels in target communities.

Capacity Building

The firm specializes in capacity building for organized farmers groups, associations, cooperative societies and other institutions dealing in commercial production, processing and marketing of coffee, tea, horticultural crops, livestock and food crops.

The main objective of the capacity building programmes is to enhance the capacity of the farmers to produce more quality food through efficient use of limited resources (land, water, labour, etc.) and earn more per unit area per unit time. Noble usually prepares rigorous frameworks with feedback mechanisms that guide effective capacity-building activities which particularly target women and prioritize topics on climate-friendly agriculture. 

We engage various stakeholders to identify training needs and develop appropriate materials to address these needs, and where appropriate assist in modifying training materials as needed. The capacity-building plans developed are usually consistent with country/regional needs, particularly on climate-friendly agriculture. Noble usually conducts tailor-made trainings based on client specifications and also scheduled trainings as developed internally. We ensure that credible curriculums are designed for the learning processes for farmers and oversee the translation in local languages, and help conduct the courses in the target areas.
