In close cooperation with 19 Kenyan marketing experts we managed to come up with final draft versions of five Marketing Modules on:
Module 1: Introduction to Agricultural Marketing
Module 2: Market linkages
Module 3: Marketing costs and Pricing
Module 4: Market information

The draft versions of these five Marketing Modules are available in separated documents.

Together with 19 KENFAP staff members we worked intensively on developing a useful and practical Kenyanised version of the PEP Training manual. A final draft version of this PEP Training manual could be presented at Wednesday 8th of April to the KENFAP Management and at 9th of April 2009 to the participants of the mission debriefing. This final draft of the PEP Training manual is also available in a separated document.
