REAP is a very unique program.  It is fully based on market demand.  We offer grants with unusually stringent conditions attached.  Yet demand remains high.  Our aim is simple: to launch successful agriculture-based enterprises.  Our main task is to find agribusiness entrepreneurs, who already have good business ideas, are willing to invest in those ideas, and for whom our small grant is sufficient incentive for them to invest.
