Nigeria national page
In Nigeria the use of GALS originated from a collaboration between Oxfam Novib and IFAD to replicate GALS in agricultural value chain interventions with local partners in three countries. Originally the methodology was adapted to local contexts in Nassarawa, Osun and Ondo states, and later replicated in other states in a rural finance programme. There are two established ELCs in Nigeria:
• Ruwawayo ELC located in Ruwawayo Community in Lafia Local Government Area (LGA) of Nasarawa State, Nigeria; and
• Kagbu ELC located at Ngubi Community, 36 kilometers away from the State capital Lafia.
If you are an IFAD supported project or any other stakeholder looking for GALS expertise in Kenya, you can use this page to ask for more information and be linked to the appropriate expert, ELC or champions.
