These interventions will also deliver benefits to the wider community restoring livelihoods through increasing value chain production, productivity, incomes, quality of products and services. It will help households increase their incomes hence improving access to services specifically health care and bring communities together by bridging the emergency-development gap. Furthermore, SMEs will be exposed to great market linkage both in-country and regionally as the channels of coordination through the YPSC come to effect.  Associations as well supply chain organizations will be more active to support in developing resilient value chains through efficient, quality enhanced produce and chances of opening exporting routes to neighboring countries.
