After a life in formal employment, the last 15 of which were focused on a range of agroprocessing activities in Africa I am retiring and intend to spend some of my time contracting / working / writing / thinking in and on Agribusiness.

Starting in this area in the late eighties in South Africa resulted in a focus on small rural business as a job creation tool. However lots of blisters later I think that what all the donor activity has missed are real entrepreneurs (dedicated risk takers who push themselves forward)  supplying real (big enough to sustain a business) markets.
