Welcome to Policy and Market Options

Policy and Market Options is a non-profit organization registered in Kenya as a Company limited by guarantee. It was conceived out of the realization of the power of markets in poverty alleviation. Exploiting the potential of markets through inclusive business models and addressing systemic bottlenecks is important to alleviating poverty and ensuring sustainability of development efforts. Therefore the ultimate goal is to strengthen linkages and address the constraints within value chains that prevent them from working for the populations in need. We employ various development approaches including Making Markets work for the Poor, Market Led Development, value chains development and private sector development among others.
In this regard Policy and Markets Options provides consultancy services in partnership with development organizations and government bodies including project implementation, research, advisory, monitoring evaluation and policy review among others. We are currently working in agriculture value chains - dairy, horticulture, beef, shoats, aquaculture and poultry.
We have 10 full time staff working in programs in 4 Counties (Nyandarua, Meru, Tharaka Nithi, Nakuru) in Kenya. In addition we have pool of consultants that we call upon on need basis.... Read More
