Farmers Business Game (FBG) in Zambia

In southern Africa, the Farmers Business game was first piloted in Zambia in 2018 in a project to strengthen financial education in the country with 47 trainers trained in a space of two TOTs (Trainer of Trainers).  The FBG was piloted in two focal provinces of Zambia which were Central and Southern provinces with an aim of achieving 20 trainings and reaching out to 400 participants in each province.

By the end of 2018, the demand of the Farmers Business game increased, and the trainings were extended to other provinces reaching out to 1,752 participants in 83 trainings. Due to the high demand of the training, another TOT was conducted in 2019 bringing the total number of trainers to 74 and among the trained trainers, 18 are certified trainers.

From 2018 to 2020, the Farmers Business Simulation Game has been conducted in all 10 provinces of Zambia,reaching out to 5,967 farmers in 276 trainings.
