The Project background: Agriculture is the mainstay of Sierra Leone, accounting for 62.6% of GDP. Subsistence farming dominates the sector, where the use of fertilizer is limited due to cost, poor availability, and lack of knowledge of the increased yield benefits of correct application of fertilizer in agricultural practices. In Sierra Leone all fertilizer is imported, typically in relatively small quantities which increases cost and reduces availability at critical periods of the crop cycle. Farmers also lack the appropriate education and support which then limits their fertilizer usage.
IFC is looking to hire a firm to undertake a market study in Sierra Leone to better understand the fertilizer market and value chain and to develop a plan to strengthen the fertilizer supply chain which also supports the project development of Mangara Agribusiness Company (Mangara), a local company that is working to develop a bulk blending fertilizer plant in Sierra Leone.

Deliverables/Specific outputs: To carry out an assessment of the fertilizer market and value chain in Sierra Leone and develop a plan to strengthen the supply chain as well as support the project development of Mangaras bulk fertilizer plant.
