    ensuring adequate volume of good quality products
    enhancing their bargaining power through collective action
    enhance sustainably access to markets
    institutional arrangements that can supply quality inputs and services on a consistent basis to rural households
    access to capital through microfinance or Self Help Group (SHG) like savings and credit arrangements
    mainstreaming gender effectively in the plans, programs and activities of the Public sector organizations – especially extension services
    M&E and generating evidence
