Abstract

Economic development in rural Malawi lies at the core of the National Smallholder Farmers' Association of Malawi (NASFAM). This objective is underpinned by its intention to empower its smallholder farmer members and to improve their incomes. This has an explicit poverty reduction focus that is shared by the Malawi poverty reduction strategy paper (PRSP). The success of both the PRSP and NASFAM is being increasingly threatened by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
